British Vogue editor resigns after 25 years

The longest serving editor in Vogue's international history has just announced her resignation. After 25 years at the helm of British Vogue, editor Alexandra Shulman is departing the magazine. 

Her glittering career grew from humble begins, first writing for the likes of Over-21 magazine, then Tatler and the Sunday Telegraph before joining British Vogue as their features editor in 1988. 

Condé Nast Britain managing director Nicholas Coleridge gave her a glowing reference, stating Shulman had been the most successful editor of Vogue in its 100-year history. 

The news of her departure was first reported by Vogue, of course. 'It was difficult to decide to leave but 25 years is a very long time and I am tremendously excited that I will now look forward into a different future,' Shulman said, who famously feuded with Vogue US editor Anna Wintour, 'but I know that nothing will be quite like the years I have spent at Vogue.'


Her successor is yet to be announced.
