Why British Vogue's EIC Is Stepping Down After 25 Years

Erin Fitzpatrick

It's the end of an era at British Vogue. WWD reports that the magazine's editor in chief, Alexandra Shulman, is stepping down after an impressive 25 years at the helm. Her replacement has not yet been named, but we'll be waiting with bated breath to see who will take up one of the most prestigious jobs in fashion. 

“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," Shulman said in a statement obtained by WWD. "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."

She went on to explain exactly why she made the decision to leave the glossy. “It has been very hard to find a rational reason to leave what is unquestionably a fascinating and rewarding role,” her statement continued. “But last autumn I realized that I very much wanted to experience a different life and look forward to a future separate to Vogue." Head over to WWD to read the rest of her statement.
