E251: Editor Of Vogue (Edward Enninful OBE): How To Become No.1 In Your Industry Against All The Odds!

The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

Monday, 29 May 2023 - 1 hour 20 minutes

Edward began his career in fashion as a model before becoming the fashion director of the British fashion magazine i-D at just 18 years old. This made him youngest-ever fashion director for an international magazine and Edward held this position for over 20 years. Between 1998 and 2011 he contributed extensively for Vogue Italia and Vogue US. From 2011, he was the Creative and Fashion Director at W Magazine. In 2016, Edward was awarded an OBE for Services to Diversity in the Fashion industry, and in 2017 he was named the editor-in-chief of British Vogue.

In this conversation Edward and Steven discuss topics, such as:

His upbringing in Ghana and his experience of being a immigrant in the UK
His experience of being one of the few black people in the world of fashion
How his insecurity drove him to succeed
Becoming a workaholic and how work dominated his life
The mental health impact of being a high achiever
