Vogue Singapore will launch in the Autumn of this year with an English-language print issue, a website and presences on all relevant social platforms. It will be published under license agreement with Indochine Media.

“Vogue Singapore rejoins the market at a time when Singapore’s local fashion design and talent are rising in the country and across the entire region. Vogue Singapore will play a vital role in boosting and supporting that talent as well as in bringing regional and international ideas to this edition of Vogue,” commented Wolfgang Blau, Chief Operating Officer & President, International, Condé Nast.

Singapore is a leading fashion hub within Southeast Asia, boasting a large economy and a growing luxury industry, says Condé Nast. The largest segment is luxury fashion with a market volume of US$940m (Statista, 2020). Consumer spending is high within Southeast Asia, and 67% of Singaporeans believe that they are financially better off than they were five years ago and able to spend comfortably (Nielsen, 2019). Vogue will use its authority and influence to offer readers in the country a new lens across the fields of fashion, lifestyle and culture, says the company.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Vogue Singapore – Vogue’s 27th edition globally. Indochine Media has always been ahead of the curve with our print and digital expertise and we are excited to expand our portfolio with Vogue and have the opportunity to showcase Singapore globally,” commented Michael von Schlippe, President of Indochine Media.

According to Condé Nast, the Singapore edition of Vogue aims to establish itself as the most prominent and influential guide to fashion, with a mission of crafting impactful visual storytelling and thought-provoking journalism to empower and inspire women. Its editorial will focus on a blend of local and international content and the elevation of local fashion and design talent. Vogue Singapore will develop its own unique identity as a bold, innovative and sophisticated edition of the brand.
