Stepping in the big league, Vogue’s Fashion News Director, Chioma Nnadi has been promoted as the magazine’s new editor. Nnadi will be replacing Stuart Emmrich, who announced his departure from the magazine in July.
As a part of her new role, Chioma would look into Vogue’s digital content.
Confirming the news, Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour said she was thrilled that Chioma will be the new editor of Vogue.com. “Above all, we know her as someone who intuitively understands fashion and brings to it a genuine love of discovery. She looks in unexpected places and all over the world to find out who is doing the best work and who we should be celebrating now,” Anna said in her statement as reported by an online website fashionista.com. “I absolutely rely on her eye and her cosmopolitanism and her taste. Even better, she is forward-looking and understands that Vogue needs to reach new audiences and do so in new ways," she continued.
Starting her career at the features desk of the Evening Standard Magazine, Chioma worked her way up and landed in Vogue as a fashion in 2010. She was later named as Fashion News Director in 2014 before becoming an editor.
