“Visionary, influential and inspiring are overused terms, but in this case appropriate to describe Venetia’s work. Venetia will continue the legacy of creativity and innovation for which British Vogue is known, positioning it for its next century,” commented Enninful.
Highly regarded for her distinctive style and original casting choices, Venetia is celebrated for the striking imagery she has created. Her collaborations with photographers Juergen Teller, Helmut Newton, Corinne Day, David Sims and Mario Sorrenti, are some of the most emulated images of the past two decades and have been credited with changing the face of fashion photography.
Venetia began her career at British Vogue as assistant to Grace Coddington, before cementing her status as a stylist working with magazines including British Vogue, Vogue Italia, AnOther Magazine, Self Service, The Face, Arena, i-D and Nova, where she was appointed Fashion Director. In 1997, Venetia began consulting for Marc Jacobs, becoming Creative Director in 2001, responsible for directing the Marc by Marc Jacobs line and associated accessories from launch. A move into photography began in 2005, with commissions from British Vogue, American Vogue, Vogue Paris, W, Self Service, AnOther Magazine, Dazed & Confused, POP, i-D, Document Journal, and Purple.
This is the first appointment made by Edward Enninful, who takes up his role as editor-in-chief of British Vogue in August.
