Her World Gets A New Look, With More of Everything Readers Love

Singapore, 26 March 2009 – Her World, a publication of SPH Magazines Pte Ltd ("SPH Magazines") and Singapore’s No. 1 women’s magazine, is proud to unveil a new look with its April issue, which hits newsstands today.

The refreshed Her World features new colours and fonts as well as more sophisticated layouts to better project stories, and give the magazine a more modern and dynamic edge. New design elements have also been introduced so that readers can easily navigate their way through the magazine, which is chock-full of information every month in its Shopping, Features, Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle pages.

Three new sections have been introduced:

  • Work Wear: Within the Shopping pages, this section features the latest clothes and accessories that help the stylish achiever dress for success.
  • Manual: Everything you need to know about improving the four key areas of your life – Work, Money, Health & Happiness. Presented in easy-to-read snippets for the busy woman on the go.
  • Love Men Sex: Snippets and feature stories covering relationship how-tos, advice on understanding your man better, and sex tips for improving your love life.

In spite of these changes, the DNA of Her World remains the same - a fashion and beauty magazine, with compelling, topical in-depth reads that appeal to the modern and stylish female achiever

The last time Her World underwent a design revamp was in 2005. Ms Elisabeth Gwee, editor of Her World, says: “We felt it was time to inject new life and excitement into the magazine to keep things fresh for our readers. Last year, Her World won the SOPA Award 2008 for Editorial Excellence – Best In Magazine Design. But rather than rest on our laurels, we’ve come up with a dynamic and sophisticated new look that makes Her World even more engaging and more of a pleasure to read.”

The AC Nielsen Media Index 2008 ranked Her World as Singapore’s No.1 women’s magazine – proof that Her World, as the voice of the Singapore woman, knows what readers want, and continues to deliver the very best to them. Her World has also clinched the MPAS Magazine of the Year 2009 award on 24 March 2009. (MPAS - Magazine Publishers Association of Singapore)

Apart from the new sections, other must-reads in the April issue include interviews with Her World’s Woman Of The Year Goh Soo Khim and its Young Women Achievers Yip Pin Xiu and Laurentia Tan, a 32-page Accessories special, a beauty story on makeup colours that work for every woman, an in-depth guide to buying your first private property, and a fun feature on cute guys who can bring their services to the busy female achiever’s doorstep, from dance lessons to yoga to bartending services. As a bonus, Her World readers stand to receive some fabulous treats: free cookies at all Mrs Fields outlets and a free L’Oreal White Perfect Double Pump worth $34.90 for every copy purchased at MPH bookstores while stocks last.
