BIG, BOLD and BRAVE

By definition, NYLON Manila is big, bold, and brave, and we are here to underscore the unique identity of the youth as a generation to be seen, heard, felt, and taken seriously on all fronts in pop culture, fashion, beauty, and voice, shaping a future we can fully claim as our own. In this carved out space online and in the grand spectrum of opinion, we are championing the self-aware and self-actualized intersection of the energetic and engaged youth, primarily talking to the hybrid of younger Millennials and emergent Gen Z audience, as well as of those nostalgia-anchored who grew up with the NYLON brand. A digital-first title, we are committed to the responsibility of content and conversations that matter, with stories and narratives that are relevant, responsible, and radical.

As the 9th international edition and the 7th in all of Asia, NYLON Manila is published and presented by MEGA Global Licensing Inc., operated by One MEGA Group Inc. NYLON is a trademark of BDG Media Inc.

With its bold tone and colorful aesthetic, NYLON has been the go-to magazine for the younger generation who are unapologetically fashion and pop culture obsessed. NYLON is a multimedia brand, publishing company, and lifestyle magazine that is focused on everything pop culture and fashion. It covers a wide range of topics including  art, beauty, music, design, celebrities, technology and travel. NYLON started in 1999 when it was co-founded by Mark Blackwell, Madonna Badger, supermodel Helena Christensen, and the publishing team of Marvin and Jaclynn Jarrett, along with the investment from businessperson Sam Waksal. According to Publisher Jaclynn Jarrett, the magazine’s name NYLON was chosen because NYLON was a combination of two cities, New York and London, which were the editorial focus of NYLON when it began.

Angelo De Cartagena Quote

NYLON Manila stays true to the brand’s progressive and diverse identity by featuring celebrities and personalities who share the same ideals on their covers. In addition, NYLON has always celebrated both emerging voices and underground talents which has allowed it to connect with the next generation of trendsetters. NYLON Manila empowers the younger generation to remain steadfast in helping rebuild the outdated system of society and challenge societal norms, hence, creating a progressive next generation.
