The magazine will be headed by Monica Mong as its managing editor. Mong was previously fashion director for NUYOU Malaysia.
“I am thrilled and excited about the launch of L’Officiel Malaysia. My take on the magazine will be an homage to the world it represented to me in my youth, and to the idea of dream living created by the fashion magazines, which pretty much will capture the L’Officiel aesthetic - dare to be different,” said Mong.
