I am pleased to announce the appointment of Edward Enninful, OBE, as Editor of British Vogue effective August 1, 2017. Edward is one of the most talented and accomplished fashion editors in the world.
He is replacing Alexandra Shulman, who resigned from her post as editor-in-chief of British Vogue in January. For the past six years, Enninful has served as the style director for W Magazine. He will start his new position in August.
Enninful’s new role is historical for the publication. This is the first time in its century-long existence that the magazine will be headed by a man. He will also be the magazine’s first Black editor-in-chief. Congrats to him!
