British Queen celebrates

Edward Enninful, the editor-in-chief of British Vogue, is stepping down from his position after six years of pushing boundaries at the renowned fashion magazine.

While he will continue as an editorial advisor for the UK title, Enninful will transition to a newly-created role next year, focusing on expanding the brand globally.

As Vogue's global creative and cultural advisor, Enninful will also have the opportunity to engage in external projects. He will be actively involved in the search for his successor as the magazine's editor-in-chief.

Enninful, a Ghanaian-British creative, made history as the first black man to hold the top position at British Vogue. During his tenure, the magazine made significant strides in inclusivity and diversity. It featured its first disabled models, including actress Selma Blair, who lives with multiple sclerosis, and Ellie Goldstein, a 21-year-old model with Down's syndrome.

In an interview, Enninful explained that his vision for the December 2017 cover featuring mixed-race model Adwoa Aboah aimed to reshape "the image of modern Britain" by showcasing the country's multicultural society and embracing inclusivity.

Throughout his time as editor, Enninful featured notable personalities on the covers of British Vogue, such as Timothée Chalamet, the first man to grace the cover in October 2022, and Dame Judi Dench, who became the oldest star to appear on the cover in June 2020 at the age of 85. He also dedicated an issue to climate activist Greta Thunberg in September 2019, which was edited by the Duchess of Sussex as part of the Forces for Change edition.

Enninful's activism issue in September 2020, which included footballer Marcus Rashford, aimed to inspire positive change and featured the first British Vogue cover shot by a black male photographer, Misan Harriman.

Outside of his role at British Vogue, Enninful has been involved in charitable work as a global ambassador for the Prince's Trust, supporting its initiatives in Africa and worldwide. His commitment to inclusivity and diversity has made a significant impact on the fashion industry.

Enninful's decision to step down comes as he embraces a new role that will allow him to further his creative pursuits and contribute to Vogue's global growth. The news has been met with enthusiasm, as his influence and leadership in inclusivity, diversity, and sustainability have been unmatched in the industry.
