Edward Enninful – of The September Issue fame – has been honoured with the prestigious Isabella Blow Award for fashion creator by the British Fashion Council.

Enninful has a history of innovation, becoming the youngest editor of a major magazine when he was appointed Fashion Director of i-D at the tender age of 18. This was soon followed by becoming Contributing Fashion Editor to Italian Vogue and then American Vogue in 1998 and 2005 respectively. Since 2011, he has been at W Magazine as Fashion and Style Director.

His creative vision has also led him to pivotal contributions to advertising campaigns and catwalk shoes at Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, Céline, and Valentino, amongst others.

His work is much lauded by key figures in the industry, including Natalie Massenet CBE, Chairman of the BFC, who said, ‘His influence spans the entire globe, intersecting the worlds of fashion, art and business’.

Prada: The Iconoclasts Project 2014

04.03.2014 | Fashion | BY:

During Milan Fashion Week, Prada presented a new chapter of The Iconoclasts project. Having launched in 2009, it has already seen the likes of Katie Grand, Carine Roitfeld and Olivier Rizzo stamp their trademark on the Prada brand.

This time it is the turn of Edward Enninful, currently fashion and style director of W Magazine. Taking over stores in Milan and St Petersburg, Enninful’s vision was inspired by the energy and original thought of the 1920’s ‘Harlem Renaissance’ in America. “Miucca Prada’s work always begins with a conversation. Drawing from this notion I looked to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’… a period of original thought when creative minds inspired and embraced a new cultural identity. I felt that this was an appropriate narrative to incorporate into this season’s Prada collection,” he explained of the project. His installations were on display last week, and information about future iterations of The Iconolasts series will be released soon.
