My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.

Wear Oh Where is not just another lifestyle and fashion website. Karman believes in the power of stories — she loves reading them, and even more so, she enjoys writing them.
In 2013, she started interviewing women who wow her — telling the stories of their lives through their style, their wardrobes, their careers, travel tales and tips, beauty secrets, and any wisdom these women
To quote another fashion legend, Diana Vreeland, “It’s not about the dress you wear, but it’s about the life you lead in the dress.” How true.
So go on, take your Front-Row seat and get a precious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives… and homes… and offices… of some of the most fabulous women (and sometimes men) of the moment.
Elsewhere, Karman and her team of contributors also document their own inspired moments, as well as thoughts and observations on topics that are close to their hearts. After all, in fashion and in life, if there isn’t a point of view, what is the point?
THE WOW TEAM
Karman has been a journalist and editor for over a decade. It all started at TODAY, one of Singapore’s leading newspapers where she covered lifestyle beats from travel and fashion to dining and entertainment. It was also here that she developed her skills and passion for design.
Eight years later, it was au revoir, newspaper, and hello, glossies. She took on the role of Editor at Revolution Press, and subsequently that of Digital Editor at Glam Media and MediaCorp Publishing. Some of the most memorable interviews she’s done in the course of her career have been with Victoria Beckham, Cara Delevingne, Aimee Song, Margaret Zhang, Michelle Phan, Sylvia Toledano and Kelly Wearstler.
Karman’s experience in print and digital media, her knack for words and eye for design/style have also opened doors for her to work with major publications like Tatler Singapore, Her World, Female and Luxury Insider.
What started as a passion project in 2013 is now lauded as a go-to for inspiring stories about inspiring people, and she has since written and photographed editorials for CHANEL, DIOR, CLUB 21, THE OUTNET.COM, LOEWE, RALPH LAUREN, MATTER, SINGAPORE FASHION WEEK, and The Canary Diamond Co, among others. instagram.com/jesuiskaka
EVA RISHON HO
Rishon lives, breathes good music and books. She has the phrase “Live wild, die free” tattoo-ed on her back when she turned 18, and believes in living life to her heart’s desire, and dying without regrets. spacesbyher.blogspot.sg
Daniel is an avid outdoor lifestyle and adventure photographer who’s based in Singapore. He recently explored the United States for three months, living life on the road. It is on this journey that he found the passion to pursue photography to capture moments that are meant to be remembered. It gives him great joy to adventure, to meet people, to hear their stories and capture them. www.danielkoh.co
Charlene’s life is a big, beautiful, creative mess, and she loves every bit of it. The shoe designer spends her days sewing little booties for babies, making beauty products at home and recently, teaching art to kids. She turns to yoga, Reiki and nature to find balance and peace and, more importantly, she travels. To Charlene, travel heals the soul, and she’s always thrilled to tick stuff off on her to-go list. “I may need another lifetime to do it all!” she muses.
“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all.” Like Holly Golightly, Charnice believes that fairy tales are the stuff of happiness. Christmas is her favourite time of year, and she dreams of all things sparkly and nice — that’s not to say she doesn’t also enjoy a good bargain. With the curiosity of a cat, she is easily fascinated, especially by everything beauty, fashion and food.
Terri believes that personal growth and improvement are a ceaseless process. So when she’s not seeking new ways of challenging herself, exploring new places to eat and putting together her next outfit, she wonders about life, its perplexities and people. And when life gets her down, there is no better cure for her than the voice of Ella Fitzgerald and the wisdom of George Orwell.
NIZA YUSOFF (AKA PAPERCCINO)
Niza started her Instagram account in 2013 under the moniker @Paperccino with the intention of sharing random musings of her absolutely mundane life. A simple post of an illustration she doodled, however, became the beginning of a new career as a fashion illustrator. She has worked with MediaCorp and collaborated with online magazines including this one. A girl should dream big — and hers would be to build her own stationery empire. instagram.com/paperccino
