Singapore, 1 October 2010 – SPH Magazines today launched SheShops.com, a first-of-its-kind social media shopping and fashion portal for women.
SheShops.com lets fashion-conscious women show off their fashion purchases to friends and other members of the SheShops community through virtual closets in an online social media space.

The Virtual Closet is where women can store pictures of their personal fashion items by uploading the images in a few easy steps. Images can come from their own camera or computer.
Lookbook & Lookbook pages
The Lookbook is where women can store Lookbook pages of fashion ideas they have created from their own pictures of items in their Closet, or their friends' and other members’ Closets.
The SheShops Wall
Each member has a Wall where they can post news and information about their shopping, as well as read news that has been posted by their SheShops.com friends or the SheShops.com Stylists
The SheShops.com Stylists
The SheShops.com stylists post helpful tips on a variety of topics including how to shop for vintage clothing, choose the right suit, create makeup looks, look after specialised items and find the best independent shops in Singapore.
The SheShops Stylists are:
● High Street Heather - gives tips and news on popular high street labels
● Designer Desiree - gives tips and news on international and local designer brands
● Metrosexual Mike - gives tips and news on menswear; offers a male perspective
Supporting the in-house team behind the content for the SheShops.com Stylists are popular Singapore bloggers Holly Jean and Beatrice Tan. They were chosen to be SheShops.com Ambassadors for their iconic style and established fashion and shopping blogging reputations.
SheShops.com Editor Niki Bruce said: “Everyone loves to shop. The thrill of getting your hands on the perfect pair of pumps or that dress that makes you look extra slim is something that not everyone understands. But for those who do, the second best thing about buying something you love is sharing it with your nearest and dearest.”
“SheShops.com is the go-to website for women who love fashion, and who love to shop. After all, isn't shopping a competitive sport in Singapore?”
Lim Chuan Jer, General Manager, New Media, SPH Magazines, said: “This idea was conceived when we asked ourselves what we could offer to women in Singapore, especially the next generation, to attract them to our online content?
“Social networking is the rage, as everybody knows, and SPH Magazines has a long history of creating fantastic content. We combined these two ideas and added the element that most women, regardless of age, enjoy – shopping. What we got was SheShops.com. Our vision for SheShops.com is to be a magnet for female shoppers in Singapore.”
SheShops.com membership opens to the public today.
