voguemagazine As reports of anti-Asian hate crimes have skyrocketed in the west during the pandemic, among those speaking out about #StopAsianHate are prominent figures in fashion, highlighting just how prevalent anti-Asian racism is—both inside and outside of the industry. At a time when fashion is still facing a reckoning when it comes to diversity and inclusivity, it’s all the more important that Asian voices are heard.
At the link in our bio, 11 fashion designers and models explain why it’s so important that we stand up against anti-Asian racism, and the steps we need to take to create a truly inclusive fashion industry. Photographed by @shanajade
voguemagazine For Vogue’s April issue, we asked 13 creatives to show—and tell us—how they’ve been spending their time at home. Indeed, several 2021 home decor trends are scattered throughout their homes: more-is-more maximalism, playing with grand scales, floral-filled romance, indoor-outdoor living, and a modern take on the family room.

voguemagazine Last night at the Hollywood premiere of @ddlovato ’s YouTube docuseries, the star flipped the script by reintroducing herself. "Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil" offers a candid look at the singer-actress’s time in the public eye and the tumultuous highs and lows she’s faced thus far. No subject was off-limits. In a moment where celebrity personas—and the social media accounts that enshrine them—are as carefully curated as a museum exhibit, the unfiltered glimpse into Lovato’s personal life feels substantive.
To introduce a project this personal, Lovato and her stylist @Siena Montesano went for a fashion statement that aptly represents who the star is now. Tap the link in our bio for more details on the night.
voguemagazine Though @Avani Gregg may have gotten her social media start carrying off high-drama looks designed for a literal clown, her everyday routine is far more subtle—and equally well-executed. “My mom was the one that taught me how to do my makeup,” says Gregg.

voguemagazine "I clicked through news article after news article, letting the words burn through my body. Eight killed in massage parlors, six Asian women. No evidence yet that this is a hate crime," writes Ly Tran.
"Then I watched and re-watched the blood-boiling footage of Sheriff Jay Baker issuing a statement of what sounded like sympathy for the gunman. He was fed-up. At the end of his rope. A bad day for him.
I was stunned. The recent rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans had put us all on edge, but this shooting hit close to home. As immigrants from Vietnam and former nail salon technicians, my mother and I were no strangers to violence and abuse, no strangers to the toxic whims of racism, sexism, and classism in the service industry. My mother saw us in those murdered women, and it reminded her of the trauma we’d endured for so long and had tried so hard to escape.
I struggled to understand how this wasn’t considered a hate crime, and I struggled to understand how someone could possibly seem to empathize with this depraved murderer. I measured my definition of a bad day against Baker’s and thought of all the bad days my mother and I suffered in our salon."

voguemagazine This season, hand-made bags and market totes in macramé leather, woven straw, and raffia took the runways by storm—it’s a continuation of the craftsmanship we saw at the spring 2020 collections with natural materials cut into all shapes and sizes from woven accessories to raffia gowns.
“In the 18th and 19th centuries rattan was particularly favored in the tropics because it wouldn’t warp or crack in the heat and later, it was as much loved by The Modernists who saw it as a comfortable and clean lined alternative to upholstery,” says Lulu Lytle, co-founder of British interiors company @soanebritain and author of Rattan: A World of Elegance and Charm. The book reads like a love letter to the material which is harvested from a variety of climbing palm-like vines native to tropical regions of Australia, Asia, and Africa. It’s then woven into the most wonderfully durable and design-friendly pieces for your home.

voguemagazine The walk from Union Square to Chinatown is meant to be uncomfortable. Since last summer, @thatcoffeyboy , the founder of the activist group @RunningToProtest , has been organizing monthly 5K runs and walks to raise awareness for various social injustices. After the horrifying shooting in Atlanta, and the rise of anti-Asian violence over the past year, the focus this month was to facilitate a dialogue and bring about a renewed sense of solidarity between Black and Asian communities.
“My thing is just to speak about truth—it’s going to be a very uncomfortable conversation—but it takes uncomfortable conversations to all stand on one common ground,” says Coffey, who organized this weekend’s protest alongside artist @powermalu and fashion designers @alldaydaoyi , @prabalgurung , and @therealphilliplim .
“We carry the burden with us of the generation before, but that was then and this is now,” says Gurung. “Now we’re starting anew. Real change is going to happen.”
