Ghanaian-born Edward Enninful has been appointed as the editor-in-chief of British Vogue, succeeding Alexandra Shulman, who resigned in January 2017 after 25 years.
Enninful, the former fashion and creative director at W Magazine, will be the first male to edit British Vogue in its 100-year history, and will begin his new role on August 1. He spent his childhood in London where, aged 16, he was model-scouted and his fashion career began.
His career to date has seen him work for Italian Vogue, American Vogue and most recently W Magazine, as well as consult on countless high-fashion campaigns.
He makes the first African to take on the reins at Vogue.
