With the departure of Edward Enninful earlier this year, the fashion world eagerly awaited news of his successor at British Vogue. The suspense came to an end as Chioma Nnadi, in a momentous announcement, unveiled her new role as the Head of Editorial Content for the prestigious magazine.
In a statement that exuded excitement and gratitude, Chioma shared her joy at joining British Vogue’s esteemed team: “I’m so thrilled to announce that I’m the new head of editorial content for @britishvogue. Huge thanks to Anna Wintour, @edward_enninful, and Roger Lynch for giving me this opportunity. I’m truly honoured and so excited to be coming home. Stay tuned! 🇬🇧”
Chioma Nnadi embarked on her Vogue journey back in 2010, starting as a fashion news writer and steadily ascending the editorial ranks over the past decade. Her remarkable journey culminated in her appointment as the editor of vogue.com in September 2020.
Anna Wintour, Chief Content Officer and Global Editorial Director at Vogue, expressed her confidence in Chioma’s capabilities: “Chioma is beloved among her colleagues at Vogue, and is an editor and writer with an impeccable reputation—both here and in the fashion industry at large. I can’t think of a more worthy person to follow in his footsteps than Chioma, who has proven herself adept at speaking to our digital audience and has found ways to extend Vogue’s reach, authority, and influence across all of our platforms.”
Chioma Nnadi acknowledges the weight of her new role, stating, “Is there pressure? Yeah, there’s undoubtedly pressure — it’s Vogue.” She reflects on the transformation of the industry, saying, “When I began my career, there was only one other Black person in the building, and we both attended the same college. It wasn’t the same environment as it is today. Clearly, issues of diversity and inclusion should always be at the forefront, but it now feels like a more open conversation, which, to me, signifies progress.”
As Chioma Nnadi steps into her role as the Head of Editorial Content for British Vogue, the fashion world eagerly anticipates the innovative and inclusive direction she will lead the iconic publication.
