British Vogue’s New Editor is a Man!
British Vogue has made history once again by naming Edward Enninful as Editor In Chief. Not only will he be the first male to take on this prestigious role but also he is the first African American to do so. Enninful is currently the fashion and creative director at W magazine. His new role will begin August first of this year. Enninful entered the fashion industry at the young age of 16 when he was scouted in London by a modeling agency. Soon after he was introduced to i-D magazine founders Trish and Terry Jones and began assisting them with the publication process. He then became the youngest fashion editor ever at the age of 18. Many of his previous and current colleagues expect great things from him at his new role. Enninful is known for his bold editorial style and the publication is looking forward to him sharing that with them to create a new and intriguing aesthetic. Enninful knows how to tap into the interests of younger readers and create editorials that speaks to the style mavens of today. Another exciting change British Vogue hopes to see under Enninful’s lead is more diversity. He has been very vocal about adding more color to the fashion industry. He says that adding one model to a runway show or ad campaign does not solve any problems. He went on to say that the change must come from the inside meaning we need more people of different ethnic backgrounds teaching in schools and becoming doctors and lawyers. The best is yet to come for British Vogue, count on Edward Enninful.
