Twenty-seven-year-old model Lily Kwong is a Columbia University graduate with a degree in urbanism. Fresh out of school, she began working in urban planning, where she also fell in love with sustainable design. Community service has always played a powerful role in her life, and one of her recent accomplishments occurred last year, when she teamed up with eco-friendly label Amour Vert. Together, they launched a project to plant a tree for every T-shirt sold from their Plant a T(R)EE collection. In the realm of modeling, Kwong has worked alongside her cousin, acclaimed designer Joseph Altuzarra, and has been featured in editorials for Vogue and T Magazine.
