Rihanna’s favorite fashion person and Naomi Campbell’s BFF is now in charge.
This morning, British Vogue and the Chairman of Condenast have confirmed Edward Enninful‘s new position as Editor- in- Chief of British Vogue. The Ghanian – born and British citizen will start his new job role on August 1.
“Today is one of the most special days of my life. It is wonderful to be honoured by my country while surrounded by my family and closest friends,” says the new Vogue editor according to an official statement via British Vogue.
Edward got his start at the tender age of 16 as a a model. Then, he quickly transferred over to the publishing side of fashion, becoming a fashion director for i-D Magazine after befriending the publication’s founders.
The editor has many accolades under his belt. Just recently he was awarded the most prestigious fashion award- Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire – last October.
Edward is slated to take the British publication into new directions as he is most known for tapping into the cultural and diverse zeitgeist. We can’t wait to see what campaigns the fashion creative will come up with under his new title. Congrats.
