Chic and In Charge: 10 African-American Fashion Executives
Spotted on the London tube Edward Enninful got his start in the industry as a model. A few years later at the age of 18 he was named creative director for i-D, one of the most influential magazines in Britain. Over the years while holding down those duties and with his brother acting as agent, Enninful has offered his services a la carte to designers and publications like Donatella Versace and Vogue. Be it mounting a fashion show or overseeing an advertising campaign, they know he’ll do an impeccable job. But that work may be put on hold as he settles into his latest job. As of April he’s the fashion and style director for W magazine.
