After a quarter of a century editing British Vogue making her the longest serving editor, Alexandra Shulman is leaving the magazine to “experience a different life” and is “looking forward to a future separate to Vogue”. No announcement has been made about who will take over for Ms. Shulman at the moment. But Conde Nast plans to post the job to attract external and internal candidates. However, the job posting may just be a formality as some reports indicate a successor may already be lined up and will be announced shortly.
Said Conde Nast Britain’s Managing Director Nicholas Coleridge:
This is an announcement I hoped never to have to make. Alexandra Shulman, editor-in-chief of British Vogue for a quarter of a century, told me before Christmas that she had decided to stand down from Vogue in six months time.
Said Alexandra Shulman:
I have edited British Vogue for 25 years almost to the day, and to have steered it during our spectacular centenary has been one of the greatest privileges. During that time I have worked with an unparalleled collection of talent both inside and outside the magazine and have been lucky enough to see both Vogue and the British fashion industry expand and flourish.
