Grace Coddington’s celebration of fashion has danced along the cutting edge for over 30 years now. Abandoning a highly lucrative career as a leading model during the swinging 60s London scene, alongside contemporaries such 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 legendary photographers including 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.
