Grace Coddington to release autobiography

Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue and surprise star of last year’s documentary The September Issue, has announced she is writing her autobiography.

The Welsh born stylist, who began her fashion career as a model in the 60s, has enlisted former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden to help write her memoirs. The pair have previously collaborated for Coddington’s 2002 coffee-table book, “Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue

In an interview with WWD she said: “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project. I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The pair plan to shop the finished proposal to publishers this autumn. So far, no release date has been announced.
