To celebrate our 50th birthday, we got 3 local fashion designers – Jo Soh of Hansel, Ashley Isham and Nicholas Wong – to come up with their interpretations of the spirit of the magazine. We also invited German illustrator Grobi White, who does illustrations for us, to design one for the Her World team.
YOU CAN HAVE THESE SHIRTS TOO!
All 4 designs will go on sale from March. The V-neck silk-screened cotton tee ($30) comes in black and white, and is available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.
PS: $5 from the sale of each T-shirt will benefit Unifem Singapore. To buy, look out for the mobile Her World Glass House that will travel to these areas: outside Wisma Atria from March 5-25, Bugis Junction from April 30 to May 27, and Parkway Parade and another location along Orchard Road later this year.
ASHLEY ISHAM, with model-host Denise Keller
Ashley: “The floral motif was inspired by wayang kulit (Indonesian shadow puppet theatre). Like its enduring significance, Her World is an iconic magazine in Singapore.”
On his muse: “Denise complements the Her World spirit because, like the magazine, she is fresh, contemporary, free-spirited, alluring and romantic.”

Grobi White and the Her World Team!
Grobi: “I have always loved brave trapeze artists.
So I drew a scene with a woman performing on a swing.
I think she and this glitzy necklace represent the Her World team as fashion-forward, modern and fun.
