British Vogue has announced the appointment of Chioma Nnadi as its new head of editorial content. The 44-year-old fashion journalist, who is of Nigerian and Swiss-German descent, will take over from Edward Enninful, who resigned as the editor-in-chief in June.

Nnadi, who was born in London and raised in Lagos and New York, has been working at Vogue since 2010, most recently as the fashion director of the magazine’s website. She has also written for The Fader, Trace, and The New York Times.

Nnadi will be the first black female head of editorial content at British Vogue, which is one of the most influential and prestigious fashion magazines in the world. She will be responsible for overseeing the editorial direction and vision of the magazine, as well as its digital platforms.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Nnadi said she was honoured and excited to be coming home to British Vogue.

She wrote: “I’m so thrilled to announce that I’m the new head of editorial content for @britishvogue. I can’t wait to get started with this amazing team and to continue the legacy of this iconic magazine. Thank you so much to @edward_enninful for this incredible opportunity and for your mentorship over the years. I’m coming home!”
