When it comes to ANYTHING fashion and music related, it’s mostly often accompanied with Edward Enninful’s name in some way, shape or form. The former Style Director of popular women’s publication, W Magazine, has been appointed Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue, succeeding Alexandra Shulman, who resigned in January after 25 years in this role. Not mention he’ll be the first male to edit British Vogue in it’s 100-year history!
Enninful is known to provide such forward fashion editorials that evoke such elegance with strong narratives. Being familiar with the Vogue DNA with contributions to American Vogue, Edward has made great strides with any publication he’s contributed to and/or worked with. For example, since his role at W Magazine which he assumed in 2011, helped transform the title’s fortunes, boosting ad pages by 16 percent in 2012, the biggest year-over-year gain among fashion titles. Let’s not forget his contribution to the Iconic Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue” featuring an all black female model cast throughout. An issue so successful that Condé Nast was forced to print an extra 40,000 copies! And as an advocate and supporter for inclusion of more diversity in fashion, he’s been awarded an OBE for services to diversity in the fashion industry. The Ghanaian-born and London-raised creative is not just a stylist nor an editor but an admiration and influential figure to the entire fashion community as an entirety. Enninful will officially take on the role August 1 2017.
