Hong Kong Tatler Celebrates 40th Anniversary With First Ever Augmented Reality Magazine Cover

Hong Kong Tatler’s September Issue featuring Sabrina Fung-Lam

[HONG KONG – 06 September 2017] – Hong Kong Tatler has created a ground-breaking augmented reality magazine cover for its 40th anniversary issue. Featuring businesswoman and extreme fitness guru Sabrina Fung-Lam, Hong Kong Tatler’s 40th anniversary September issue will see the star springing into action thanks to state-of-the-art augmented reality technology. Hong Kong Tatler has partnered with AWETHENTIC STUDIO, and the augmented reality experience is hosted on AWETHENTIC STUDIO’s newly launched AWETHENTIC APP.

“As Hong Kong Tatler turns 40, we are continuing to grow our digital offering and be the first to adopt new media technology. It’s the only way we’ll remain as the city’s most successful luxury lifestyle title and I’m confident we’ll do so for at least another 40 years,” says Edipresse Media’s Chief Creative Officer and Managing Director Sean Fitzpatrick.

Hong Kong Tatler’s September issue also presents a retrospective line up celebrating the past, present and future of Hong Kong. The issue also comes with the annual Fashion supplement, which features more than 80 pages of style news, the hottest trends and exclusive interviews with industry insiders. Hong Kong Tatler’s September issue and fashion supplement will be available at the city’s best bookstores and newsstands from 7 September.

To view Hong Kong Tatler’s September AR experience, simply download the AWETHENTIC APP on the Apple App store, open the app, and point an iOS tablet or phone at the September magazine cover. When scanned, the cover triggers a behind-the-scenes video in which Fung-Lam delivers a special message to viewers.
