Grace Coddington is the kind of stylist who weaves reality into dreams, transforming a structured photographic spread into a delicate narrative. She first caught my eye in The September Issue documentary and I’ve been curious about her ever since.
Quietly assured and softly spoken, Coddington pours artistic integrity into the pages while not being swept up in the celebrity frenzy that seems synonymous with fashion these days. Fashionologie whispers that Coddington is in talks to produce her book Catwalk Cats into a film.
“Do you ever see me giving interviews? I’m never one of those people talking into a microphone at the end of a show. I’m not prepared to crush some poor designer who’s just spent six months slaving over a collection. I think it’s horrible and they all [the pundits] talk about themselves. Plus, the questions are so stupid . . . I hate trends. And you know the question they always ask me at shows; ‘What’s the latest trend?’”
I’m dying to hear more from this woman. Imagine the stories she could tell.
