When it comes to men’s fashion-focused publications in the print magazine space, few can stand toe-to-toe with the authority of VMAN. Billed as the unrivaled destination for men’s fashion, the biannual US magazine is V Magazine’s glossy masculine counterpart that delivers an unparalleled mix of trend reports, service-based coverage, and celebrity profiles. The magazine has withstood the test of time since its launch in 2003 as a long-running men’s resource to showcase the best of menswear and offer a curated display of art, film, design, travel, music, grooming, and sports. In its quest to do just that, VMAN marks a significant milestone by heading east to Southeast Asia for the launch of VMAN SEA this 2024. 


VMAN SEA isn’t just the latest men’s fashion magazine and publication to hit this colorful part of the world, it also marks VMAN’s first foreign edition. It’s set to make its impact known with its arrival in September 2024 as it seeks to cater to sophisticated and style-conscious men and men’s fashion lovers in this dynamic and growing market. Given how vibrant men’s fashion and style culture is in Southeast Asia, it only feels right for VMAN to launch its first international edition here. VMAN SEA aims to platform trendsetters, established names, and emerging artists from the bustling cities, streets, and spaces of the region, as it should.


Bringing this to life is a strategic partnership between One Mega Group, Inc. (OMGI), the Philippines’ pioneer publishing company with three decades of experience, and VMAN, the vanguard of men’s fashion destinations. OMGI is a subsidiary of AGC Power Holdings Corp. (AGC PHC), the Philippines’ fastest-growing media company, which also houses under its wing other international media brands such as NYLON Manila, Vogue Philippines, Billboard Philippines, and the soon-to-be-launched Rolling Stone Philippines

Together, this partnership promises to deliver a publication that combines the culture, stories, narratives, voices, and experiences of Southeast Asia and the impact of global menswear trends for content that resonates with readers from the region. 


“Partnering with VMAN is a testament to One Mega Group’s commitment to put the spotlight on men’s fashion and lifestyle,” says Ramon Galicia, Publisher of VMAN SEA and COO of One Mega Group. “We are confident that VMAN SEA will captivate and inspire the modern Southeast Asian man with its sophisticated content and unparalleled style.”

Adds Philippines-born VMAN Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director Stephen Gan, “We are excited to bring VMAN to Southeast Asia and to collaborate with One Mega Group, a partner that shares our vision for excellence and innovation in publishing. This launch signifies our mission to reach new audiences and provide them with the global content that VMAN is renowned for.”
