For the first time in its 100-year history, a male Editor-In-Chief takes over British Vogue. Edward Enninful, the former style director at W magazine, will begin his duties in August, succeeding Alexandra Shulman. As a former style director, he has worked with a big list of fashion brands like Christian Dior, Valentino, and Gucci to name a few, and of course, A-listers like Emma Watson and Rihanna.
Let’s get to know Edward a little bit more, shall we?
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?
