From a childhood in Ghana watching his mother’s dressmaking, to teenage years in London modelling and styling, to coming out and a challenging relationship with his father, to the youngest fashion director at an international publication, to taking grunge mainstream, to showcasing and celebrating Black women, to becoming the first Black editor-in-chief of British Vogue, to his marriage to his long-term partner Alec, Edward Enninful has been ‘A Visible Man’ and a pioneer.

He will be in conversation with fellow game-changer Bernardine Evaristo about his life, his work, his experiences in the world of fashion and his commitment to inclusion and representation. Bernardine Evaristo is a prolific writer and the first Black woman and Black British person to win the Booker Prize for her novel ‘Girl, Woman, Other’. Sponsored by The Edwardian, Manchester.

Copies of ‘A Visible Man’ will be available to collect before the event.
