Over the weekend, Teen Vogue Style Director Andrew Bevan took to his Instagram account to announce his departure from the magazine after 10 years at Condé Nast (he got his start as an assistant in Vogue's entertainment department). "It's been a wild ride of joy, pleasure, constant exhilaration and education," wrote Bevan in the caption, alongside a sketch by Grace Coddington, whom he refers to as his "friend and sometimes-life coach." In the post, Bevan also thanks Anna Wintour, previous longtime Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Amy Astley and Vogue entertainment director Jill Demling for "believing in me, instilling in me a boundless confidence and fostering a career that has been a true privilege, much more than job satisfaction and far beyond what I could have ever dreamed." Bevan also thanked the magazine's dedicated readership, along with Teen Vogue's past and current editorial team, led by Elaine Welteroth, Phillip Picardi and Marie Suter, who took the magazine's helm last May.
Bevan's next move has yet to be announced, but if his impressive career thus far is any indication, we don't expect him to slow down anytime soon. During his decade-long run at the magazine, Bevan helped ramp up Teen Vogue's video presence with series including "Breakfast with Bevan" and behind-the-scenes looks at the process of making a cover story (of which, by the way, he wrote 11.) Perhaps he said it best when he sat down with Fashionista to discuss his career back in 2013: "At the end of the day, I love an adventure."
