Lily’s first issue of 2023 (June release) is themed around corporate women trailblazers in PNG, including six dynamic women who have reached senior management in a country which favours men as business leaders, and who generously share advice and insights on how they broke through the bias.
The issue also delves into dating dilemmas of the PNG career women – with real-life stories shared by women who took part in our wide-ranging survey.
Our fashion spread "Runway to Real Life" features statement evening gowns through to practical workwear by some of PNG’s best designers – many of which were revealed at the Project Runway fashion event last year – worn in everyday settings by four of the women who contested the 2022 Miss PNG Pacific Islands Pageant, including winner Josie Nicholas.
