Rising Fashion Superstar – Lily Kwong

Lily Kwong is known for her impeccable style and tireless devotion to multiple causes and charities. Lily's father is Chinese and her mom Irish-German. She grew up in San Francisco and at age 18, moved to New York to pursue her dreams fresh out of high school.

As a Vogue favorite, Lily has been featured in the American edition of the magazine multiple times on the merits of her style, education and philanthropic activities. Lily was featured in American Vogue's 120 Anniversary issue, as one of the 120 most important fashion influencers.

Lily recently graduated from Columbia University with honors: both Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

Lily Kwong participated in the "Made by Nike" project, a series of videos where different personalities speak on the role that sports play in their lives. Lily talks in the video about growing up an athlete (playing baseball and volleyball) and wanting her lasting legacy to be the fact that she was a positive role model for girls around the world.

Lily formed a nonprofit called Nuvana.org in collaboration with her father. Their newest initiative is sponsored by the Nike Foundation's Girl Effect. It is a mission-based nonprofit organization which helps at-risk adolescent girls find solutions in their communities via interactive online games focused on financial, saving, and health knowledge, leadership development and building self-esteem.
