Enninful, the former style director at W Magazine, succeeds Alexandra Shulman, who resigned after 25 years in January.
Enninful, the former style director at W Magazine, will be the first male to edit British Vogue in its 100-year history, and will begin his new role in August.
Ghanaian-born and London-raised, Enninful’s entry into fashion was as a model aged 16, having been scouted on the Tube by legendary stylist Simon Foxton. His first shoot was with Nick Knight who introduced him to i-D magazine, and before long, he was assisting the title’s fashion director Beth Summers, while simultaneously studying for his degree at Goldsmith’s. When Summers left the title, the then-18-year-old Enninful was appointed to her role making him the youngest-ever fashion director of an international fashion title.
Inspired by London’s club scene in the ‘80s, Enninful’s work during this period captured the frenetic energy and creative zeitgeist of the time. It was during this time that he befriended many of his future fashion collaborators, including David Sims, Pat McGrath, Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell .
