Grace Coddington's undisputed talent and impassioned commitment to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international style icon. The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary, focused on Grace's working relationship with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. The daughter of a hotelier in Wales, Grace was a teenager when she won a Vogue modelling competition and moved to London to become one of the top models on the city's swinging 1960s fashion scene. In 1968, Grace decided she wanted to work behind the camera and started work as a junior editor at British Vogue. She soon established herself as a master stylist and creative director. "I hate fashion trends so in my head I write a script to make it less fashion", has always been her credo, storytelling with clothing that is the quintessence of Grace Coddington's work.

"Getting the shot is everything in the fashion world, and it's something that Grace Coddington has always been pretty adept at. How adept is best judged by taking a look at her forthcoming book, an outsize tome titled Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue, which samples some of the visual treats she has concocted in her 30-plus years as a fashion editor."
New York Magazine
