Chioma Nnadi has announced her appointment as the new vogue.com editor.
Chioma Nnadi who took to Instagram to announce her new role which will see her leading all Vogue.com’s digital content.
The fashion editor and journalist who has become a powerful voice in the fight for diversity and inclusivity especially in recent times started her career at Evening Standard Magazine in London at the features desk before moving to New York to write for independent style magazine; Trace.
She worked as the Style Director at Fader and joined Vogue as a fashion writer in 2010. She was made the Fashion News Director in 2014 up until her newly announced role.
“We all know Chioma here at Vogue, of course,” The Cut reports that Wintour shares in an email to staff. “We know how brilliant she is, what a wonderful writer and editor, and what a supportive colleague. Above all we know her as someone who intuitively understands fashion and brings to it a genuine love of discovery.”
According to The Cut, Wintour says that she “absolutely relies” on Nnadi’s eye, cosmopolitanism, and taste. (In my opinion, she is always one of the best-dressed editors at fashion week, not to mention a lovely, knowledgeable person.)
“Even better, she is forward-looking and understands that Vogue needs to reach new audiences and do so in new ways. “She respects our iconic past but is not tied to old traditions. Chioma is an exceptional editor for this role and I couldn’t be happier to see her lead us forward.”
“Super excited for the road ahead in my new role as editor of Vogue.com” Nnadi wrote on Instagram to celebrate her new role.
