British Vogue's Edward Enninful covers Time, accompanied by a profile written by Diana Evans, who describes him as "the most powerful Black man in his industry." The editor discusses his own experiences growing up and constantly feeling "othered," as well as the inclusive vision he executes for the publication he helms: "I wanted to reflect what I saw here growing up, to show the world as this incredibly rich, cultured place. I wanted every woman to be able to find themselves in the magazine," he says. {Time}

Katie Grand on her new project
Katie Grand has walked away from Love, the publication she's run for more than a decade, and is swiftly pivoting to a new venture, The Perfect Magazine. "“It's not just another magazine," says Grand in an interview with Business of Fashion's Tim Blanks. "The idea is it's much more of a content agency, creating content for brands on screen, on paper, in an exhibition, or a party, if we're ever allowed to have parties again... It could be anything — or everything — I've ever done coming together." {Business of Fashion}
