In case you missed it, Gold House, the organization that unites and champions Asian Pacific creators, companies, and communities through innovative programs, hosted its 2nd annual Gold Gala titled “Gold Bridge,” at The Music Center to honor the 2023 A100—which includes 100 Asian and Pacific Islanders who have helped impact culture and society within the last year, voted on by the top Asian Pacific nonprofit, business, and creative leaders.

With a few star attendees such as Ke Huy Quan, Eva Longoria, Neal Mohan, Radhika Jones, the cast and creators of ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’, the cast and creators of ‘The Joy Luck Club’, and many more, you would have found Young Mazino. The actor and recent star of Netflix’s psychological thriller ‘BEEF’ attended the gala, and took VMAN along to give us a glimpse at his event look.

“We have 3 beautiful Omega watches & David Yurman men’s jewelry to choose from.  Omega provided some amazing watch options, from sleek to heritage. I ended up going with the black leather strap which really harmonized with the rest of my fit. Silver jewelry felt like the right move to bring out some nice tones against the all-black, and the selected pieces were perfect, not too loud, not too soft.”

“I’ve known Andrew for some time – he’s familiar with my stubborn Korean hair and knows how to get it to listen. Sometimes I wear it down, other times with Andrew’s styling I can go for something a little more sleek & fun to go off of Kozaburo’s garments.”

“The full look lined up and ready for its night out.”

“The silver details on this shirt are a cool nod to a ‘Wild West’ vibe – which really spoke to us in the look selection process.”

“It’s all in the details. Kopi (founder and creative director at Kozaburo) infuses his design sensibilities with his personal journey in an elegant matter – the mark of a true craftsman and artist.”

“Went with a more vintage feel to lean into the ‘cowboy’ spirit that the Kozaburo suit inspires.”

“Final touches with David Yurman jewelry; with my stylist Amanda Lim.”

“One of my favorite things about Kozaburo’s jacket design was the cotton twill lining, bringing a comfortable wearable feel to an otherwise very formal jacket.”

“The full fit has been donned; ready to head out with Tracy.”

“Really big shoutout to Kopi again for such a dope fit.”

“Thinking feels better in boots.”

“My stylist asked, have you ever furrowed your brows? My response.”

“Serious face.”

“Omega with the black leather strap to really complete the look.”

“Happy to have received Moose’s final seal of approval.” 

“Conversation with the self.”

“Feeling comfortable and ready as I get into the car to take on the Gold Gala.”
