British Vogue Editor in Chief Alexandra Shulman will be resigning this June after 25 years with the company.
According to an article on Vogue UK, British Vogue Editor in Chief Alexandra Shulman will be resigning this June after 25 years with the company. Shulman’s resignation was announced in press release by Nicolas Coleridge, Managing Director at Condé Nast Britain.
Coleridge released a statement about Shulman’s resignation saying,
“This is an announcement I hoped never to have to make. She has edited the title for a quarter of its existence, through its period of highest ever circulation, and its simultaneous transformation into a global digital brand. She has been the towering figure of the British fashion press throughout her tenure: a superb journalist and editor, who understands and exemplifies every quality.”
Shulman also released a statement saying,
“Although I have had months to acclimatise to the idea of leaving Vogue, it hasn’t made the moment of announcing this any less sad. I have been incredibly privileged to have been able to look after such a great magazine for so long and even more to have worked with so many people over those years who have made the experience so interesting and rich.”
Shulman has been an editor at British Vogue the longest, having become Editor in Chief just four years after Anna Wintour was hired at Vogue. She began her career working at Tatler in 1982 and wrote for publications like British GQ where she was later hired as an editor.
By the time she resigns, Shulman will have edited over 300 issues of Vogue UK.
No announcements have been made as to who will replace Shulman.
