Irish activist, author and fashionista Sinéad Burke has just been announced as contributing editor for British Vogue.
Sinéad was included in Vogue’s ’25 Most Influential Women’ list in May and has clearly made waves within the company since then.
The activist announced her new role on Instagram, writing, “I’m very, very proud to be a new Contributing Editor to @britishvogue.”
“Thank you so much to @edward_enninful for his extraordinary leadership and to @gilesharrersley and @alcaselyhayford to taking a chance on me.”
I’m very, very proud to be a new Contributing Editor to @britishvogue. Thank you so much to @edward_enninful for his extraordinary leadership and to @gileshattersley and @alcaselyhayford for taking a chance on me. My first piece (which is online now) is about my body, disability and our response to difference. . . “We are embarrassed by what we do not know, and we are often aggressive towards anyone who reminds us of our ignorance, or is different to us. Yet, from children’s innocent inquisitiveness we could learn to cultivate an empathy and respect for otherness.” . .

I’m smiling and my bob is suspiciously like that of another Vogue team-member…. this photo was taken at @scaddotedu.]
Sinéad can add this new role to her list of achievements from the past year, as she has done a TED Talk, appeared on the cover of ‘The Business of Fashion’ alongside Kim Kardashian and met Meghan Markle all within the last 12 months.
The fashion activist has already published her first article in British Vogue and she said that is all about “my body, disability and our response to difference.”
Sinéad is a role model to many and we’re looking forward to the Navan native taking over Vogue, one article at a time.
