Grace Coddington abandoned a highly lucrative career as a leading model on the 60s London scene, alongside such swinging contemporaries as Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy, to¬† sign on 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 now 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.

Description: Hard bound with publishers mylar dust jacket, in orange slipcase, as issued. 408 pages. Profusely illustrated with full page color plates. Photographers include: Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Shelia Metzner, Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton, Horst, Bruce Weber and many others. Some sunning and minor wear to publishers slipcase, otherwise fine. RARE!
