WGSN To Honour Alexandra Shulman

Alexandra Shulman, Vogue editor-in-chief, will receive the Outstanding Achievement Hall of Fame accolade at the annual WGSN Futures Awards on Thursday, May 26. The event, which is run by global trend-forecasting agency WGSN, celebrates the fashion industry's most innovative talents.

Shulman was chosen "for her inspirational story and contribution to fashion publishing", said Lauretta Roberts, WGSN's director of brand & propositions, adding that the organisation "would like to recognise Alexandra as a magazine legend and for her success in creating the future of a world-renowned brand that continues to grow and inspire."

"Alexandra's editorship is the longest in British Vogue's history, and has seen her steer and maintain its status as the definitive monthly fashion bible," Roberts continued. "Retaining a strong print presence by diversifying in to an award-winning website and beautifully designed apps."

Previously known as the Global Fashion Awards, past recipients of the Hall of Fame award include the iconic Iris Apfel, and designers Erdem and Christopher Bailey.
