Edward Enninful is in the building. The building being Vogue House, of course. Today marks his first day as editor-in-chief of British Vogue, a role he said is "truly a dream come true".

"I grew up reading British Vogue - I am so honoured and humbled to be taking up the mantle of editor," he told us. "I realise I am stepping into the shoes of a hugely respected editor in the shape of Alexandra Shulman, someone who has chosen to leave at the top of their game with a legacy of 25 years of success."

Enninful, who departed his position as fashion and style director of W Magazine to take up his new position, revealed that he was "most excited to tell my father about my appointment. He immigrated to England from Ghana with my mother and six children."

"British Vogue is a great magazine with a legacy of creativity and innovation," he said. "I look forward to continuing to produce an exciting beautiful magazine for its readers."

Speaking of the appointment, Condé Nast International chairman and chief executive Jonathan Newhouse called Enninful "an influential figure in the communities of fashion, Hollywood and music which shape the cultural zeitgeist", adding that "by virtue of his talent and experience, Edward is supremely prepared to assume the responsibility of British Vogue."
