Championing the World Class Filipino

From the Middle East to the rest of the world, IllustradoLife shares the stories of Filipinos expats from around the world, providing a global venue championing the world class Filipino.  IllustradoLife features articles on fashion and beauty, travel, lifestyle, business, events and other topics of interest to the international Filipino community from its mother publication, Illustrado Magazine.


Illustrado is a unique lifestyle-community magazine published out of Dubai, United Arab Emirates since 2006, devoted to uplift the Filipinos around the world. The slogan ‘Taas Noo, Filipino’ and the vision of ‘Helping the Filipino flourish – global vision, native soul’ define the substance, style and corporate ethos that has helped Illustrado gain recognition in the Gulf region as a wholesome, positive, highly engaging and richly visual medium that has accorded due respect and recognition to the Filipino community.

Illustrado’s distinctive approach combines premium production values with a very down-to-earth philosophy; it is not only a magazine, but is a social enterprise that speaks and aspires to enrich a very diverse range of readers, veering off the usual media fare of gossip, scandals, sensationalism and materialism. It is a publication that has the look and feel of premium glossies, but is patronized by Pinoys who still appreciate the distinct homey flavor of ‘tuyo’, regardless of whether they are domestic helpers or business owners outside the Philippines. Because of Illustrado’s earnest approach, the magazine has touched the lives of so many progressive-thinking Pinoys, who found resonance and empowerment in the contents of its pages.

Illustrado’s advocacies also include initiatives such as Illustrado Women of Substance and Pinays Take Charge – sister projects dedicated to promote the empowerment of Filipinas in the Gulf.  Illustrado also actively support the Filipino creative community, providing talents a platform to showcase their work via the magazine and other worthwhile community projects.

From its mother publication Illustrado Magazine, the company has also added Illustrado GO a fortnightly publication for the progressive and hip Filipino in 2016.
