Edward Enninful has been appointed as Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue.

It follows Alexandra Shulman resigning back in January 2017, after 25 years at the fashion publication. 

Ghanaian-born and London-raised, the former style director at W Magazine will be the first male to edit British Vogue in its 100-years.

In a statement, Jonathon Newhouse chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International, said: “I am pleased to announce the appointment of Edward Enninful, OBE, as Editor of British Vogue effective August 1, 2017.

“Edward is one of the most talented and accomplished fashion editors in the world.”

As well as working for W magazine, i-D magazine, American Vogue and Vogue Italia, Enninful has also worked with some of the most famous faces in fashion, including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, to brands such as Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Celine, Lanvin, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Fendi and Gucci.

Back in 2014, he was awarded the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at the British Fashion Awards, followed by an OBE in 2016 for services to diversity in the fashion industry.

He will begin his new role in August.
