Stylist Edward Enninful announced as the new editor of British Vogue
Edward Enninful has been named as the new editor of British Vogue.
The 45-year-old star has gone from one of the most in demand stylists in the industry, to landing fashion’s most coveted roles.
He succeeds Alexandra Shulman in the post, who announced her departure in January after 25 years at the publication.
“By virtue of his talent and experience, Edward is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue," Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and chief executive of Conde Nast International, shared in a statement.
Enninful will begin as editor on 1 August. He’s already well versed in the workings of a glossy magazine, as he’s served as creative and fashion director of American magazine W since 2011. Prior to that he worked at i-D magazine and he’s also previously been a contributing editor at Italian Vogue and American Vogue.
His new appointment marks the first time British Vogue has had a male editor.
Born in Ghana, the style expert moved to Britain at a young age and grew up in London. In 2016 he received an OBE from Britain's Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to the fashion industry, and was joined by his close friend Naomi Campbell when he picked up the honour.
