In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Nordstrom is partnering with CFDA Swarovski Award-winning designer Phillip Lim on a limited-edition T-shirt that will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom for the month of May.

These limited-edition T-shirts will be available at 16 Nordstrom stores and online at Nordstrom.com/apahm beginning May 1st. T-shirts each with all after-cost proceeds benefiting OCA, a national organization dedicated to serving Asian Pacific Americans. For 37 years, OCA has worked with its 80-plus chapters and affiliates around the country to embrace and fulfill the hopes and aspirations of Asian Pacific American youth and their communities.

"We are excited to partner with Phillip Lim in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month," said Amelia Ransom Letcher, vice president of Diversity Affairs for Nordstrom. "Our collaborative effort in support of OCA's youth programs is one that we can all be proud of."

Lim has described his work as "classic with a sense of madness," and has a talent for designing accessible, wearable clothes with an edge.

"I was interested in this project because I was impressed by Nordstrom's past success in raising funds to help Asian Pacific American children in need," said Phillip 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."
