Does The Devil withdraw from fashion?

Por Rory

The editor-in-chief of Vogue is a style icon and a trademark. Anna Wintour is not only synonymous with fashion, she is one of the biggest celebrities in the fashion world, to the point that the Queen of England chose to sit next to her in her "baptism" in the first row of a catwalk of the last London Fashion Week.

But the rumors that she is ready to leave office are on the rise: the site Page Six published an article in which several sources claim that Wintour would leave his post in July of this year, after the marriage of his daughter Bee Shaffer, 30 years old, with Francesco Carrozzini, son of the late editor of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani. By that time, she would have had time to close her last issue of September, one of the most emblematic for fashion publications.

"The measure will allow Wintour, 68, who for three decades has been the most important fashion agent of the industry, to step aside at the top after closing the all-important September issue of Vogue," they say Page Six.

Anna was the editor of the main fashion magazine since 1988, and since 2013 she was also named art director of Condé Nast. The falls in the sales and the departures of several publishers of the magazine publisher are elements that give some credit to the speculations. The editor-in-chief of Vogue UK, Alexandra Shulman, left office after 25 years at the helm of the magazine. She was replaced by Edward Enninful, one of the most recognized and prestigious stylists in the world, who at the age of 46 is being suggested by some as a likely successor to Wintour.

The same happened with Graydon Carter, who resigned as editor of Vanity Fair last year and was replaced by Radhika Jones, who had worked at The New York Times. On the other hand, Cindi Leive was replaced by Samantha Barry to direct Glamour earlier this year.

However, in turn, Condé Nast rejected the speculation, and corporate spokesman Joe Libonati told Page Six that they "emphatically" denied these rumors, although he declined to comment more specifically on Wintour's plans.

“Anna Wintour is, without exaggeration, the most powerful woman in the contemporary fashion industry," says the Vogue website that, although from a skewed perspective - she is the head of most of those who work there – it does not stop being true.
