Chinatown Pretty features beautiful portraits and heartwarming stories of trend-setting seniors across six Chinatowns.
Andria Lo and Valerie Luu have been interviewing and photographing Chinatown's most fashionable elders on their blog and Instagram, Chinatown Pretty, since 2014.
Chinatown Pretty is a signature style worn by pòh pohs (grandmas) and gùng gungs (grandpas) everywhere but it's also a life philosophy, mixing resourcefulness, creativity, and a knack for finding joy even in difficult circumstances.
- Photos span Chinatowns in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Vancouver.
- The style is a mix of modern and vintage, high and low, handmade and store bought clothing.
- This is a celebration of Chinese American culture, active old-age, and creative style.
