Lynn Chen, Lisa Lee and Kini Zamora Take Part in the “Celebrate Your Body” Expo


Great news, San Francisco! The fun-loving Hawaii native and Project Runway Season 13 finalist, Kiniokahokuloa “Kini” Zamora, is bringing his designs to Kearny Street Workshop‘s body-positive fashion show and expo “Celebrate Your Body.” Joining him as community honorees are Lynn Chen and Lisa Lee of Thick Dumpling Skin.

Kearny Street Workshop (KSW) has been holding classes and workshops, professionally curated and produced exhibitions, performances, readings and screenings for the community since 1972. It is the oldest Asian Pacific American multidisciplinary arts organization in the country.

In collaboration with local San Francisco company ACMIST, Kearny Street whipped up a promo featuring this year’s designers who will be featured on the runway:

To get folks excited for the event, KSW is hosting a social media takeover to spread the body positivity:

“Just like this year’s Celebrate Your Body Community Honorees Kiniokahokuloa Zamora and Lynn Chen demonstrate, we’d love for you to proudly share how you celebrate your body on your social media. We want to hear from those of you who already say it proud and those who still feel it’s a struggle. Let’s be unapologetic. Let’s make a big noise together.”
