Chioma Nnadi, a 44-year-old journalist of Nigerian and Swiss-German descent has been named as the new head of editorial content at British Vogue.
She will be taking over from Edward Enninful, the editor-in-chief who enjoyed a six-year tenure as both the prestigious fashion magazine’s first male and first black editor. Enninful announced his resignation in June.
Nnadi who is currently the editor of the New York-based Vogue, will be known as head of editorial content, rather than editor-in-chief. She has spent 13 years as a writer and news director for the magazine.
Nnadi’s appointment also makes her the first black female head of the industry-leading fashion magazine.
