Synopsis: Grace Coddington's celebration of fashion has danced along its cutting edge for over 30 years. Abandoning a highly lucrative career as a leading model on the 60s London scene, alongside such swinging contemporaries as Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy, Coddington signed on in 1968 as a junior fashion editor at British Vogue. She quickly established herself on the other side of the camera, coordinating photo shoots with David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, and the eccentric Guy Bourdin. A close working relationship with royal photographer Norman Parkinson produced a series of startlingly vibrant location shoots that have come to be considered classics. At British Vogue, Coddington also introduced the sweeping narrative epic, a familiar feature of her work nowadays at American Vogue, where she has been creative director for the past 14 years. GRACE: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue is not only a collection of Coddington's greatest work, it is a visual reminiscence of her life in fashion.
About the Author: Born on Anglesey, a remote Welsh Island, in 1941, Grace Coddington won the junior section of the British Vogue Model Competition at age 18 and spent her twenties living the life of a cover girl. In 1968 she joined British Vogue as a junior fashion editor under Beatrix Miller, later becoming Fashion Director in 1986. In 1987 she spent a brief stint as Design Director at Calvin Klein, and joined American Vogue the very next year as Fashion Director. She was made Creative Director in 1995, a position she still holds. In 1993, Coddington was the subject of the retrospective show Short Stories, the first ever from a fashion editor's perspective.
