The goal with Day Night Mrkt was to create interactive experiences that shined a light on the rich AAPI cultures that exist across the Asian diaspora, in a safe and inclusive space, entertaining and educating the community through vibrant activations, all while combating anti-Asian hate.
We knew the event would be co-curated by AAPI fashion collective House of Slay, including designers Prabal Gurung, Phillip Lim, creative director Laura Kim, socialite Tina Leung and Ezra J. William. In their role as curators, the “slaysians” served as the ultimate connectors for the top AAPI food, fashion and photo vendors.
At The Good Times Karaoke Bar By Smirnoff Pink Lemonade guests had a chance to sing along while honoring the role music plays in bringing people together. Consumers supported local AAPI-owned businesses and shopped limited edition styles at The Damn Fancy Everyday Pop-Up by Tanqueray. Guests were able to experience a selection of AAPI-inspired dishes across the Asian diaspora spearheaded by female restaurateurs at the First Strides Food Hall By Johnnie Walker. At the For The Love Art Exhibition By Tequila Don Julio, we honored artist Andrew Kung through a one-of-a-kind art installation.
