Edward Enninful Names New British Vogue Fashion Director

Incoming British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful announced this morning that he has appointed Venetia Scott as fashion director of the publication. Effective from July 10, Scott replaces Lucinda Chambers, who departs the title later this month.

“Visionary, influential and inspiring are overused terms, but in this case appropriate to describe Venetia’s work," said Enninful today. "Venetia will continue the legacy of creativity and innovation for which British Vogue is known, positioning it for its next century."

Scott began her career at British Vogue working under then fashion director Grace Coddington, before moving on to work at publications including Vogue Italia, AnOther Magazine, Self Service, The Face, Arena, i-D and Nova - the latter of which she was fashion director. In the mid Noughties, Scott started a successful career as a fashion photographer, which has seen her images appear in British Vogue, American Vogue, Vogue Paris, W, Self Service, AnOther Magazine, Dazed & Confused, POP, i-D, Document Journal, and Purple.

Scott's appointment is Enninful's first hire since he was made editor-in-chief back in April, replacing Alexandra Shulman. He will formally take up the position on August 1st.
