In a groundbreaking milestone, Chioma Nnadi, a 44-year-old journalist of Nigerian and Swiss-German heritage, has assumed the role of the head of editorial content at British Vogue.

Her new position marks a significant moment as she takes the reins from Edward Enninful, who had served as the editor-in-chief for six years, breaking barriers as both the magazine’s first male and first black editor. Enninful announced his resignation in June.

Currently serving as the editor of Vogue based in New York, Nnadi’s new title is “head of editorial content” rather than “editor-in-chief.” Her impressive journey spans 13 years as a writer and news director for the magazine.

Nnadi’s historic appointment solidifies her position as the first black woman to lead this influential and industry-leading fashion magazine.
