Hello Kitty Fashion Magazine Launch

Some exciting news in the world of Hello Kitty! A new UK magazine just launched this month called Hello Kitty Fashion Magazine. Right on the cover is Lady Gaga in all her avant garde glory with a huge Hello Kitty bow in her hair:

Here’s a description I received from the magazine of what they’re all about:

Hello Kitty’s got style, originality and attitude and she’s bringing it all to her latest magazine. Hello Kitty Fashion is a quarterly 80 page publication, which will hit newsstands in the UK in July. The magazine, which is aimed predominantly at teenage girls and the older Hello Kitty fan, aims to bring it’s readers a fresh and exciting take on the teenage glossy mag. Hello Kitty Fashion is bursting with cool content, including top tips on how to create different Harajuku styles, an exclusive interview with Yuko Yamaguchi (Head designer at Hello Kitty HQ), loads of fab fashion and beauty tips and tons of cool Hello Kitty related content.

I’m also excited to mention that myself plus some other Hello Kitty fans from around the world were featured in their “Crazy About Kitty!” article. Here are some pics of the inside of the magazine:

I remember taking the picture.  I was trying to get my husband to wake up and take it for me, but he wouldn’t budge so I had to put the camera on a chair and use the timer. Glad it worked out ok!

So, if there are any Hello Kitty fans out there who get their hands on the magazine, I’d love to hear what you thought of it.

Hello Kitty Magazine

I came across a few mentions of a Hello Kitty Magazine and I just had to find out where I could subscribe to it. Its only available in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Sanrio is trying to get more sales there as there’s been some “resistance” to Hello Kitty’s brand. I know…hard to believe! Issues cost 1,890 Yen and each month features a different location. Since Hello Kitty is from Britain, this was the focus of the first issue which came out in July 2007. Only 50 issues are planned so far. Subscribers receive a Hello Kitty trinket with each issue…if only it was available here.

In digging around, I found another magazine called the Hello Kitty Accessory Collection biweekly magazine in Japan. It appears to have started back in 2006 and costs 990 Yen. Like Hello Kitty Magazine, each issue focuses on a different country.
