Chioma Nnadi has just made history by becoming the first black female editor-in-chief of British Vogue.

Born and raised in the United Kingdom to a Nigerian father and a Swiss-German mother, Chioma Nnadi began her journalistic career in the vibrant city of London. She honed her skills by writing for various magazines, laying the foundation for what would become an illustrious career.

In 2010, she made a significant move across the Atlantic to the United States, where she joined the prestigious Vogue magazine. Since then, Nnadi has been a driving force behind the scenes, running the US site, co-hosting a podcast, and contributing as one of the magazine’s star writers. Her journey within the world of Vogue has been nothing short of remarkable, culminating in her recent appointment as editor-in-chief at the age of 44.

Nnadi’s perspective on the world is shaped by her unique background as a Black woman with a biracial heritage. She eloquently expresses this by saying, “How I view the world is also how I see it – through a lens that is influenced by my background, by where I live, and by having parents from different cultures and having to move between these cultures.” Her appointment represents a significant step towards diversity and inclusion in the fashion industry.

Nnadi has worked at Vogue for 13 years, penning some of the magazine’s most popular cover stories, including features on Rihanna, Erykah Badu, and Michaela Coel.

“Chioma is beloved among her colleagues at Vogue and is an editor and writer with an impeccable reputation—both here and in the fashion industry at large,” said Anna Wintour, chief content officer and global editorial director of Vogue.
“I can’t think of a more worthy person to follow in Enninful’s footsteps than Chioma, who has proven herself adept at speaking to our digital audience and has found ways to extend Vogue’s reach, authority, and influence across all of our platforms.”

In preparation for her new role, Chioma Nnadi plans to return to London shortly. As the editor-in-chief of one of the world’s most prestigious fashion magazines, she shoulders great responsibility.

However, she approaches this challenge with a joyful and celebratory spirit, ready to make her mark on British Vogue and the fashion world at large.
