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

Wear Oh Where is not just another lifestyle website. Karman believes in the power of stories — she loves reading them, and even more so, she enjoys discovering, writing and telling them.
Elsewhere, our team also document their own inspired moments, experiences, observations and thoughts on topics that are close to their hearts. After all, in life and in style, if there isn’t a point of view, then what is the point, right? x
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

“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
