BREAKING FASHION NEWS:
First we had the news that UK InStyle magazine was closing its print issue to continue as an online only magazine and fashion resource and now it’s the turn of Bristish Vogue to drop a bombshell…
This morning it was announced that after 25 years, Bristish Vogue Editor in Chief, Alexandra Shulman would be stepping down in June 2017 from the powerhouse fashion magazine.
“It has been very hard to find a rational reason to leave what is unquestionably a fascinating and rewards role but last Autumn I realised that I very much wanted to experience a different life and look forward to a future separate to Vogue.” Alexandra Shulman, British Vogue
Speaking this morning of Shulman’s decision to step down, Conde Nast MD Nicholas Coleridge said that Shulman has been “the longest serving, and most successful editor of British Vogue in its 100 year history.” Fine praise indeed.
Shulman thanked Conde Nast for opportunities beyond those she’d ever imagined and credited her time working on the centenary edition of the magazine as a career highlight.
So what’s next for the British institution that is Vogue magazine, the bible in which every fashionista trusts? Who knows? As yet a successor has not been named but with Shulman stepping down in just 4 months from now, all eyes will be on Vogue’s socials……
“Thankyou for giving me so may opportunities and for trusting me to take care of the precious cargo that is Vogue, and allowing me the freedom to do the job exactly how I wanted.” Alexandra Shulman
