Luxury retailer Nordstrom has partnered with CFDA Swarovski Award winner Phillip Lim on a limited-edition T-shirt that will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom beginning May 1 in honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. The limited-edition tees will be available at 16 Nordstrom stores and online for $85, with proceeds benefiting OCA, the 37-year-old national organization dedicated to serving Asian Pacific Americans. Said Lim: "The T-shirt design is my signature in repetition like a graphic print. It's simple, but acknowledging my full name was a part of growing up as an Asian-American and accepting the two cultures that I am a part of. This is a cause that's personal to me, and I hope that in my small way I am able to contribute to this great program."
