Farewell: The March 2024 Issue Of British Vogue Will Be Edward Enninful’s Final Cover
IN 2017, EDWARD ENNINFUL BECAME THE FIRST MALE TO EDIT BRITISH VOGUE IN ITS 100-YEAR HISTORY AND THE FIRST BLACK EDITOR EVER TO HELM A VOGUE TITLE.
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM —British Vogue‘s March 2024 issue will be Edward Enninful final issue as editor in chief.
Enninful confirmed that he has 7 issues left and will continue working on them.
Last month, we reported that Enninful will step down as EIC and take on a new role as global creative and cultural adviser at Vogue (see it here). He will also become editorial adviser at British Vogue. Separately, Enninful will work on projects and causes outside of the Vogue and Condé umbrella.
In his Vogue and Condé roles, Enninful will continue to report to Anna Wintour, who is global chief content officer for Condé Nast, and editor in chief of American Vogue.
Neither Condé Nast nor Enninful has specified what the two new roles will involve. Enninful has not clarified what the new projects, outside of Condé, will be.
Enninful is also helping to search for a head of editorial content for British Vogue, who will look after the day-to-day of the magazine.
Condé’s decision to hire an editorial content head is aimed at bringing British Vogue in line with the overall group’s new management structure, where content is shared globally and editors in chief are a thing of the past.
He took over as editor in chief of British Vogue in August 2017 and in December 2020 was promoted to European editorial director of Vogue. He also served as creative and fashion director of W. He may be committed to Condé — for now — but he’s made no secret of his future ambitions beyond the world of magazine publishing. It’s clear that Condé is keen to keep him on side — and in pole position to take over if and when Wintour decides to leave.
