Diversity Advocate Chioma Nnadi Takes the Reins at British Vogue

Chioma Nnadi acknowledges that she has significant expectations to meet as she steps into her new role as the head of British Vogue.

Taking over from Edward Enninful, who spent over six years pushing boundaries and advocating for diversity at the renowned fashion magazine, is no small task. Yet, London-born Nnadi, the first mixed-race woman to assume this position, believes there is still much progress to be made.

“Undoubtedly, Edward’s contributions were remarkable, and I aim to build upon his legacy by advancing the conversation even further,” she expressed to BBC News.

At 44 years old, Nnadi began her career in the UK’s newspaper industry before transitioning to New York and joining Vogue. Over the course of 14 years, she steadily advanced through the ranks, ultimately becoming the editor of Vogue.com.

Throughout her career, Nnadi has conducted interviews with prominent figures such as Rihanna and Angelina Jolie, emphasizing her identity as a storyteller above all else.

Following Enninful’s departure last summer, leaving a void at the helm of British Vogue, Nnadi recently returned to the UK to assume the role.
