This May, photography and fashion were in focus as Macy’s celebrated Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with Nigel Barker. Barker visited six Macy’s stores across the country to discuss fashion, photography and his heritage. Of Sri Lankan descent, Barker has been internationally celebrated for his photography and creative presence in all areas of the fashion, beauty and entertainment industries.

"Macy's is thrilled to partner with Nigel Barker to celebrate Asian Pacific American art, culture and heritage in stores nationwide. Barker represents the strongest voice and point of view in photography and fashion over the past 20 years and we are excited to share his stories and expertise with Macy's customers," said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s vice president of diversity strategies.

Barker recently released his second title, “Models of Influence: 50 Women Who Reset the Course of Fashion,” profiling 50 women who have influenced the modeling and fashion industries and challenged our perception of beauty.

“I am delighted to be collaborating with Macy’s to discuss my favorite subjects in the world, fashion, photography and Sri Lanka. Growing up with my Sri Lankan mother working as a model through the 1960s and 70s had a profound effect on my view of beauty and the modeling business at-large, I look forward to sharing my stories,” said Barker.

Following the discussion, Macy’s hosted a customer reception where Barker signed his most recent book “Models of Influence: 50 Women Who Reset the Course of Fashion.”
