A new independent zine created by graphic designer Eom Jisoo and stylist Wei Ting Wong.
These unprecedented times might make us believe that creativity is last thing we need to worry about, but emerging creatives in the fields of fashion, beauty and pop culture are keeping us hopeful for what’s to come once the pandemic is over. A new independent zine, titled Magazine For Young Girls, is highlighting talent from Asia and diaspora communities around the world. Following a Kickstarter campaign, creators Eom Jisoo and Wei Ting Wong are finally launching their first-ever issue.
“The title explores the possibilities of what a ‘young girl’ can represent, regardless of their age, gender or race through the lens of fashion, beauty and pop culture,” New York-based graphic designer Eom and Singapore-based stylist Wei explain. Providing a platform for young creatives who might be overlooked in the saturated industry, the two creators are seeking to ultimately build a space where womxn can uplift one another and communicate freely.
The resulting first issue features a diverse roster of emerging creatives, including Parsons graduate Rui Zhou, Guangzhou designer Yueqi Qi, British musician Arlo Parks and more. Take a sneak peek at Magazine For Young Girls‘ inaugural print in the gallery above, and head over to the zine’s Instagram account to order a copy for yourself.
