HARPER’S BAZAAR October 2009

I’m not the most patriotic person in this country, but I have to say this. I really appreciate the people working behind all these magazines, because I love me some local fashion magazines. Although I do buy foreign ones quite a bit, I have never missed buying local magazines ever since I became a total convert to fashion late last year. Although I had been interested in fashion since like 3-4 years ago, it’s only last year that I summoned the courage to buy fashion magazines. It’s not really the most in-thing to do actually. Except for when there’s celebrity covers(for STYLE:), I’ve bought each issue diligently. So, G, I remembered you saying you don’t like local magazines, but I beg to differ. I love reading them.

And although 3 out of 4 are imports, I love the the fact that they are adapted, and almost exclusively are shot with models based in Singapore, though not necessarily locals. I love the Natashas and Raquels, but sometimes, I like looking at new faces too. Since most of the models are just based here for a few months, it’s fun to spot out models that you think will land in NY and make it big.

CHEERS TO LOCAL FASHION MAGAZINES!

    • I agree, but I will always have a soft spot for AMICA covers. I like their simplicity…

  2. Asyraf, i have to agree with you. in fact, I kinda find our local magazine’s quality are improving so so much. And an asian on the cover on our harper’s bazaar is like a wish come true. No asian landed a cover for like a few years, and this year, we’ve got TWO! (lucy liu on aug, and this wang xiao on oct)

  3. Well I do look at Men’s Folio and do not hate it. But do you seriously want to channel Singapore into America Vogue??
