In her new role, Godoy will oversee Vogue Japan’s editorial operations, and will “work closely” with both Anna Wintour, Vogue’s global editorial director and Condé Nast’s chief content officer, as well as Leslie Sun, Vogue’s APAC director, according to an announcement released by Condé Nast on Thursday.
“Tiffany’s experience working across print, digital, audio and video, coupled with her deep understanding of — and passion for — Japanese fashion culture, make her a natural fit for this role,” Wintour said.
A journalist, editor, consultant, video, and podcast creator, Godoy began her career as a fashion editor in Tokyo two decades ago and, in 2010 she co-founded The Reality Show, a multimedia magazine and creative studio.
“I am incredibly proud to contribute to the Vogue legacy as the content lead for Japan,” Godoy said. “Japan and Vogue are pillars of my creative and career development, and I am thrilled to intersect new media possibilities, identity, and innovation through Japan’s singular aesthetic and cultural filter.”
In December 2020, Vogue publisher Condé Nast announced a major editorial restructuring that consolidated power in the hands of American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, the following year saw a number of long-time editor-in-chiefs of international titles leave their posts.
In May last year it was announced that Vogue Japan editor-in-chief Mitsuko Watanabe would step down at the end of 2021.
