Leading online fashion retailer YesStyle once again partnered with Los Angeles-based filmmaking group Wong Fu Productions, sponsoring their recently concluded nine-city tour, dubbed the "Wong Fu Productions Spring Tour 2011 with YesStyle.com." The tour brought the group to select universities in California, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Chicago and Massachusetts. At each stop, three YesStyle coupons valued at $200 each were raffled off to lucky audience members.
YesStyle continues to collaborate with Wong Fu Productions as both pursue their joint mission of supporting and promoting Asian American artists. The partnership started last year with early editions of the group's hugely popular "Weekends with Wong Fu" video blogs sponsored by YesStyle.
"We have worked with YesStyle in the past and always had a positive experience," said Wong Fu co-founder Ted Fu. "We are happy to have them on board as our Spring 2011 college tour sponsor. Interacting with our wonderful supporters at each stop of our tour and telling them about YesStyle is always exciting."
YesStyle's founder and CEO Joshua Lau was similarly enthusiastic about the continued collaboration. "Both YesStyle and Wong Fu Productions have made great strides since our initial alliance. I look forward to further strengthening our joint efforts to advocate Asian artistry and creativity through fashion and new media," he stated.
Composed of Wesley Chan, Ted Fu and Philip Wang, Wong Fu Productions have been making viral videos since 2003, using YouTube as the main platform to reach their audience. To date, they have created over 200 videos while their YouTube channel ranks as the 59th most subscribed channel with 15 million views and 725,000 subscribers.
The spring tour allowed Wong Fu to touch base with their audience through speaking engagements. Aside from special video presentations, the group conducted meet-and-greet as well as Q&A sessions with select Asian student organizations from the host universities.
Wong Fu recently participated in the 27th edition of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF), an event also sponsored by YesStyle. The group presented a special program on New Media that included a screening of their selected works in collaboration with other Asian American YouTube celebrities.
