The last National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) San Francisco event I had attended was the Gateway to Leadership regional conference last Fall. Last week, in celebration of the Lunar New Year, NAAAP-SF – in collaboration with Kollaboration SF, organized a fashion show along with some Asian American musical performances (along with a lion dance) held and sponsored by Macy’s near Union Square.

If you haven’t heard of Kollaboration, Kollaboration is “an annual event and movement produced by young Asian and Pacific Islander (API) professionals and students to promote a strong API presence in entertainment and media.”
The event was well attended, with clearly over 100+ guests with plenty of wine and water to go around, although I could have grabbed more hors d’oeuvres. The event started off with a lion dance, the some few welcoming words, then a performance by Hip Hop violinist Corey Crywolffs, then the fashion show, some closing remarks and a performance by acoustic duo Charito Soriano and FunkCH3N
