Asian male models
Pop the Cork Poster
There have been efforts in fashion to be more inclusionary of Asian male models.
This ubiquity of female Asian models begs the question, Where are their male counterparts?
We have been fed this image and idea that somehow Asian men are lesser than their non-Asian counterparts and undesirable.
I wanted their angular features with the prominent jaw line and narrow nose, instead my face is all cheekbones and a barely there jaw, and a nose as wide as a landing strip.
Adverts, commercials, film, and TV?
The impact this had on an Asian boy like me lingers to this day.
I write about fashion and style and everything in between.
