British fashion stylist, and fashion and style director at W Magazine, Edward Enninful, covers Industrie Magazine #8 with supermodel friend Naomi Campbell.

Inside the Spring/Summer 2015 issue — which is out now the UK, and will be available June 29 in the U.S. — he shares his love for Instagram, how Naomi inspires him and much more.

Their black-and-white shoot is lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, with styling by Jack Borkett and grooming by Caroline Sims. Check out snippets from Enninful’s interview below.

On loving Instagram:

“I’m so fascinated by the influence of social media on fashion. I’ve seen so many artists on Instagram, up and comers you would have never known otherwise. Even my dog, Ru, loves to Instagram.”

On how he didn’t always plan to be a stylist, but always thought about style:

“Coming from a family who put a lot of emphasis on academics, I always thought I was going to be a lawyer.”

“When I was really young, I had an afro and wore pressed jeans and argyle sweaters. In my teens, I moved on to ripped Levi’s jeans, white T-shirts, and cowboy boots.”

On how he is constantly inspired by friends Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss:

“It’s very hard to find people who can inspire you for such a long time and whose company you enjoy. This is what makes them muses rather than just beautiful women… When you’re around Kate, you want to be around her all day and night. Same with Naomi. They’re funny, but they’re also strong businesswomen.”

On how “Good Kate, Bad Kate” is one of his favorite shoots:

“Mert and Marcus really push me to my creative limits. I have known them since the late Nineties. No story we do is ever the same and I love each one so much I could never pick a favorite.”

On having no regrets:

“I’ve learned to put a big value on having a life outside of fashion, and I think that’s what’s saved me, because the fashion industry can suck you in.”
