1. He has the Vogue DNA.The fashion title definitely isn’t new to him. Enninful was a contributing editor at both American Vogue in 2006, and Vogue Italia in 1998 (Yes, he got to work with the late Franca Sozzani!).
2. He spearheaded Vogue Italia’s “Black Issue”This issue sold like pancakes that it had to print extra 40,000 copies.
3. He started out as a model.Like Ana Wintour, he started out as a model. He had been scouted on the train by renowned stylist Simon Foxton when he was 16. His first shoot was with Nick Knight for i-D magazine, and the next thing he knew, he was the assistant of the magazine’s fashion director Beth Summers. The moment she resigned, the 18-year-old Enninful took over, making him the youngest fashion director of an international publication. How crazy is that?
