Earlier this week fashion history was made when Conde Nast (the publisher of top fashion magazines such as GQ, W, Vogue, Glamour, and others) hired their first EVER African American Editor in Chief. Keja Minor has been named the editor-in-chief of Brides magazine, making her not only the first African American to hold that position, but the first person of color to EVER hold this highly coveted and respected position. I hope that you are beginning to see how BIGGGGGGG this is!!!
Minor’s climb to the top includes having been the executive editor at the magazine for a few years. In addition to that she was previously EIC of Uptown Magazine–a luxe lifestyle magazine for African American women. She has also held an EIC position at Gotham Magazine, and managing editor positions at Los Angeles Confidential and Aspen Peak.
“I am tremendously excited by this opportunity,” Minor said in a statement. “It’s an honor to take the reins of such an iconic brand and to lead this extraordinarily talented team in bringing inspiring, innovative ideas to women at this pivotal and joyous moment in their lives.” fashionista.com
