Edward Enninful becomes the first ever black MALE editor of British Vogue
After Alexandra Shulman stepped down as editor of British Vogue back in January, there was great speculation on who could possibly take on the coveted role. Well, now we have an answer! This morning (April 10) the publication announced Edward Enninful OBE, the British fashion stylist and current Creative and Fashion Director at America’s W magazine, will replace Shulman effective 1st August 2017.
One of the proudest moments of 2016 was when I was awarded an #OBE for Services To Diversity In The Fashion Industry by The Royal Princess, Anne at Buckingham Palace. If You had told my 18 year old self that this would one day be possible, He wouldn't have believed you. Xoxo #investiture #OBE #GreatBritain
This is HUGE news as this also means that Enninful will be the first black male Editor at the title.
Enninful, 45, has a rich fashion CV, having been appointed Fashion Director at British title i-D in 1991 (at the age of just 19) and worked extensively with both American and Italian Vogues throughout the 2000s.
