Let’s hear what our models have to say about the event:
“Cambodian people have a special way of celebrating life, from ancestral traditions to stories that survive generations, and even in the sound of our music, dance, and dress. We are a group of humans who are born resilient and laugh with thunder in our bellies. This will be a night of rewriting history as we see fit, and I am so proud to be a small part of it,” said Princess Moon.
“CMAA Fashion Show is one of the most culturally rich events I have ever attended and been part of. This is my first time on the runway and I cannot wait to live this beautiful experience with other models from our community. If you missed it last time, you definitely should not miss it again this year,” said Thomas Doc Daugherty.
