Lucinda Chambers to Leave British Vogue After 36 Years

* Lucinda Chambers is stepping down as fashion director
* She’s held the position since 1992
* No successor has been named

Lucinda Chambers is stepping down as the fashion director at British Vogue, Fashionista reports. The announcement comes five months after news broke that editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman would be stepping down in June. Chambers has held her position since 1992.

“Lucinda has been the most wonderful creative collaborator, as well as friend, throughout my whole editorship. She has produced many of the most influential and inspiring fashion shoots in the world during her time as fashion director of this magazine as well as a huge number of our most remarkable covers,” wrote Shulman in a statement posted to the magazine’s website. “It is impossible to overstate her vision, commitment, imagination and her ability to bring the best out of teams that work with her. I, like her many admirers, will be excited to see what she produces in her next chapter.”

Chambers first job at British Vogue was as the personal assistant to reknowned editor-in-chief Beatrix Miller. She later became assistant to Grace Coddington before briefly joining Elle UK and returning to British Vogue in 1992.

No successor has been named. It’s believed that incoming editor-in-chief Edward Enninful will make the decision when he takes the reigns this August.
