DAWN HEE (DawnHeeBL@mediacorp.com.sg) / Writer, styleXstyle
Dawn believes in doing the write thing, and is almost always dressed in black. When she’s not taking the world by storm, she can be found having oyster omelette without oysters, stocking up on Nespresso capsules (Caramelito rocks) or adding on to her collection of polka dot items.
MONA TEO / Contributing Writer, styleXstyle
Coolest moment of her life was probably when her doctor told her she heals “significantly faster than most people”. She also has an unhealthy fondness for Alexander Wang, traveling, epic parties, cats and for some reason, brussels sprouts (especially with bacon).
CYNTHIA TAN (CynthiaTanSY@mediacorp.com.sg) / Senior Marketing Executive, styleXstyle
Cynthia (strongly) believes in following her heart – which led her here. And when all else fails, there’s always fries and ice cream.
JASMINE TAN (Jasmine.Tan@mediacorp.com.sg) / Senior Marketing Executive, styleXstyle
Jasmine is constantly trying to find the perfect balance between eccentricity and rationality. Is she quirky? Perhaps. In her spare time, she's either filling up Airbnb wishlists or spacing out.
A self proclaimed Know-it-All for Korean celebrity news. When she isn't searching for updates on BIGBANG, Xiu Wen can be found working on fashion sketches or stitching up fab outfits in her room.
ZENAVIA QUEK (email@example.com)
Armed with a good movie and bag of chips, Zen loves spending time at home with her dogs and boyfriend. Also, if you can't already tell, she gets her energy from food and lots of sleep.

Allyson began her publishing career 16 years ago as a wide-eyed fashion stylist and writer working for various magazines. She’s been the Editor of Style Weddings for the past 6 years, where she continues to fulfil her passion of shooting fashion spreads. A sucker for too-pretty-for-words pictures, irreverent GIFs, silly animal videos, and a good tearjerker of a human-interest story (she blames it on an elusive onion ninja lurking in office) — it’s only natural that she’s in charge of Style: Weddings’ social media platforms.
JASMINE ALIMIN / Assistant Editor, Style: Weddings
No spring chicken to the wacky world of magazines, Jasmine’s 16-year career started at the trenches as an Editorial Assistant and gradually worked her way up to Beauty Editor for various lifestyle titles.

MARK LEE / Photographer
Mark is the youngest in the team and is fun-loving. Becoming a photographer was unexpected for him but he remains extremely grateful for the opportunities he has been given.

HONG CHEE YAN / Photographer
Photography gave a lost Chee Yan direction and a passion to work for. He admits that he loves the freedom his job gives, and it is perfect for him because he cannot stay in one place too long.
