Milano Fashion Week 2021

A masterclass of Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful at Bocconi

She's the world's most famous fashion editor. And now Anna Wintour, Chief Content Officer Condé Nast and Global Editorial Director of Vogue, is sharing her insights into the future of publishing with the students of SDA Bocconi. Introduced by the rector of Bocconi University, Gianmario Verona, Wintour shared the stage with Edward Enninful, Editor in chief of British Vogue, Bocconi professors Paola Cillo  (Associate Dean for Research, SDA Bocconi), Gabriella Lojacono  (director EMiLUX, SDA Bocconi) and Emanuela Prandelli (director MAFED, SDA Bocconi). From the future of publishing to the changing face of fashion and the role of Condé Nast, the panel discussed the urgent need for change, precipitated by the arrival of new media and an increasingly global information ecosystem. But the biggest surprise of all? Anna Wintour, climbing down from the stage to mix with our students, who clamored to get close to a genuine legend of the fashion world.
