British Vogue appoints Chioma Nnadi as New Editor-in-Chief

British Vogue appointed its new editor ending months of the uncertainty sparked following Edward Enninful’s resignation.

British Vogue’s decision to appoint Chioma Nnandi, the 44-year-old journalist of both Nigerian and Swiss-German descent will likely ensure the increased visibility of ethnic minority models and diversity within the publication’s pages, something the former editor, Enninful was applauded for instigating.

Following her appointment, the London-born journalist becomes the first Black woman to lead the legendary fashion magazine since its establishment in 1916.

Nnadi, who is currently based in New York, was remarkably absent from this week’s glamorous Vogue World event.

She will take up her new role in the London office on 9 October.

Announcing Nnadi’s appointment on Monday 18 September, Anna Wintour praised her as “an editor and writer with an impeccable reputation”, describing her as a “beloved colleague” who would focus as much on fashion and culture.

However, Enninful described Nnadi as a “brilliant and unique talent with real vision” in a statement.
