British Vogue has announced that Lucinda Chambers will be resigning as fashion director of the magazine this summer after 36 years.
According to an article on Vogue UK, British Vogue has announced that Lucinda Chambers will be resigning as fashion director of the magazine. Chambers will resign this summer after having been with the magazine for 36 years. This comes just a few months after Alexandra Shulman announced her resignation as Editor in Chief of the magazine.
Shulman released a statement saying,
“Lucinda has been the most wonderful creative collaborator, as well as friend, throughout my whole editorship. She has produced many of the most influential and inspiring fashion shoots in the world during her time as fashion director of this magazine as well as a huge number of our most remarkable covers. It is impossible to overstate her vision, commitment, imagination and her ability to bring the best out of teams that work with her. I, like her many admirers, will be excited to see what she produces in her next chapter.”
Chambers released a statement saying, “I adore British Vogue and am so very proud to have been a part of it for so long.”
In January, Shulman announced her resignation as Editor in Chief of British Vogue. Her resignation was announced in a press release by Condé Nast Britain Managing Director Nicolas Coleridge. Shulman, who has been with the magazine for 25 years, will be resigning this June.
Last month, British Vogue announced that Edward Enninful would replace Shulman as Editor in Chief of the magazine. Enninful will begin working on August 1st.
Chambers began working for British Vogue in the 1980’s as an accounts assistant. She then became former Editor in Chief Beatrix Miller’s personal assistant. After three years as Miller’s personal assistant, Chambers became Grace Coddington’s assistant who she says “was, and still is, the queen bee of fashion.”
Afterwards, Chambers left British Vogue to work at Elle but shortly returned. She then became fashion director of the magazine when Shulman became Editor in Chief.
No announcements have been made as to who will replace Chambers.
