Lindsay Peoples Wagner, currently the fashion editor at New York Magazine and The Cut, will take the reins at Teen Vogue on October 18. In her new role, Peoples Wagner will oversee digital, social, video and events including the Teen Vogue Summit.
Wagner, a Buena Vista University grad, was an intern and assistant at Teen Vogue. “Lindsay is a gifted talent who can equally inspire and challenge her audiences,” said Anna Wintour, artistic director of Conde Nast publishing company and editor in chief of Vogue, in a statement. “She brings a sophistication and fresh perspective to the cultural moments and social themes that activate our Teen Vogue readers and we are very excited to have her back at Conde Nast.”
Even though she was journalism major in college, a career in fashion grew on her gradually.
“Since I was young I was very interested in fashion,” she said. “I spent a lot of time with my grandmother and she took me to a senior citizens center every single day and we would sew, crochet and knit so I just really naturally fell into it that way. I don’t think it was until I got to college that I thought I could make it into a career.”
