Investitures at Buckingham Palace, London, UK – 27 Oct 2016[/caption] In 2013 I gave an exclusive scoop on how British Supermodel, Naomi Campbell secretly came to Ghana for a W Magazine cover shoot. The man responsible for that shoot, Edward Enninful  has been appointed as the new editor for the famous Vogue magazine.  The Ghanaian-born former model and stylist will take over from Alexandra Shulman in August. Edward, who is currently creative and fashion director of W magazine, is the first non-white man to edit a mainstream women’s fashion magazine. He grew up in west London as one of six children and learned his love of fashion from his mother, a seamstress.

His career in fashion began when he was scouted as a model at the age of 16; by 18 he had been made style director of i-D magazine. Enninful went on to work as a contributing editor at Italian Vogue and later American Vogue, before joining W in 2011. He was awarded an OBE in 2016 for services to fashion. Announcing the appointment, Condé Nast, publisher of Vogue, called Enninful “an influential figure in the communities of fashion, Hollywood and music which shape the cultural zeitgeist”. Chairman Jonathan Newhouse cited his work at Italian Vogue in particular as having attained “landmark status in recent cultural history”. He added: “By virtue of his talent and experience, Edward Enninful is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue.”]]>
