Edward Enninful Says Goodbye To W Magazine With 'Defy', Lensed By Mert & Marcus For The September 2017 Issue

W Magazine says goodbye to Edward Enninful and he says goodbye to them in his new role as editor-in-chief of British Vogue. Forgetting for one moment all the problems in America's cities and heartland, too, 'Defy' is an American love story straight out of 'West Side Story'.. 

From the beginning of his groundbreaking tenure at W, departing creative and fashion director Edward Enninful has not only created wildly exciting fantasies, but also fearlessly tackled important issues of race and gender in his fashion editorials, along the way opening doors for more diversity in fashion. For his last September issue, he didn't disappoint. Casting the likes of Binx Walton, Aleece Wilson, Hiandra Martinez, Jasmine Sanders and more, he's collaborated with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for Defy', which W editor in chief Stefano Tonchi says is "destined to become another one of my favorites." Enninful's ultimate message?
