Alexandra Shulman, editor-in-chief at British Vogue since 1992 "I haven’t ever tried to be a sort of perfect, cool personality who doesn’t have the troubles that everybody else has" – Alexandra Shulman. Alexandra Shulman has been the editor of British Vogue since 1992. Running from the headquarters on the fifth floor of Hanover Square, she is known for cool intelligence, as well as having the ability to navigate the tricky path between couture collections and high street fashion and giving British Vogue readers lots of fantasy as well as realism in the magazine’s content. This focus on the ‘real’ side of living, that a woman aspires to more than flouncing about in ready-to-wear range is no disbelief a product of the fact that Shulman’s background does not sit in fashion, as she says herself: "Vogue is not my personal style, really. I think of it more as a type of newspaper. It’s reporting on what’s out there, to some degree, with me editing." Since be.ing Editor at the 95-year-old publication the readership has risen to above a million, a rise which has been attributed to collector’s issues and cover stars ranging from Florence Welch, Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss to Adele and Gisele. Shulman has in addition been personally credited with fostering the careers of photographers such as Mario Testino and Tim Walker. Alexandra has worked with Vogue publishing house Cond Nast since 1982, beginning on Tatler prior to going on to be.e features editor of Vogue, followed by editing GQ Magazine and subsequently returning to Vogue as editor.
