The Asian Hat Project is a collection of 6 hand-cut paper headpieces inspired by Asian headdresses/headpieces.

Through this project, Peter would like to highlight the beauty of Asian women through a re-conceptualization of what is “traditional” and to create a contrast between the different perceptions of beauty in the Asian culture.
