What inspired you all to create this company?
With the growing representation of Asian Americans in media, we believe it’s important to create visibility across all media types -including what we wear. Along with that, creating sisterhood and setting an example of unity and female friendship is deeply rooted in our mission. AAGC is the brand we wished we had as a kid. The one that was invisible from the marketplace. We are here now to make you feel included, celebrated and seen- all while looking fashionably you.
What distinguishes your company and product in the market?

Whether it be through flooding your timeline with powerful images of rad women, creating content -from interviews to skincare to straight up real talk, or designing goodies with you specifically in mind, we’re dedicated to the normalization of the next generation of AAPI gals and boss babes. To give voice and celebrate.
