It’s a hanbok designer from Los Angeles named Mehee. You guys know that hanboks are traditionally Korean. I wanted to update it and use my heritage to kind of honor and respect this occasion. So, I’ve got that and these limited edition Nikes that were made for Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander heritage month. They just came out so I’m honored to wear them.
