Biography

Alexander Fury is the fashion editor of The Independent, i and The Independent on Sunday. Prior to his appointment, Fury edited Love, Condé Nast’s influential biannual magazine, for one year. Fury is a member of the British Fashion Council’s selection panel for NEWGEN candidates, and has acted as a creative consultant for Mary Katrantzou since 2010. He held the role of Fashion Director at Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio from 2008 to 2012.

Fury is both a fashion almanac and lexicon; the editor has a seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the fashion industry. His work is a captivating mix of highbrow reference points (“you recognise something of the Van Eyck in the drape of a cape”) and one-line witticisms. Fury is unafraid of either sharing his true opinion, or polarizing the opinion of others.

Fury has written for a number of the industry’s leading titles, including Vogue Nippon, Fantastic Man, 10, 10 Men, Elle and Elle Collections
