This week on APEX Express, we talk about our body, our health, our beauty:

  • APEX Contributors Ellen Choy and Marie Choi interview Jenny Ton and Julia Rhee, co-founders of Retrofit Republic, a sustainable, vintage retailer with the intent to challenge and expand concepts in the fashion industry and style culture.
  • APEX Contributor R.J. Lozada interviews personal trainer, Long Vo, and poet, Lorenz Mazon Damuk to address the often overlooked struggles men experience when they look in the mirror.

You know the drill!
