GRACE: A MEMOIR
I am 2/3 through the autobiography by the famous and creatively gifted Grace Coddington. So far it has been an inconsistently interesting read.
In the first half of the book Grace recalls her many love stories and although she does not directly speak of the influence they’ve had on her fashion career, it is clear that she oly dated wealthy men and those who could help her jumpstart her career in fashion. While this is nothing new in this materialistic world of ours, I did feel slightly annoyed. I suppose it is not the content I was expecting.
However, in the second half of the book when Grace has matured in age and personality, she embarks on very interestinc creative projects and lets the reader see the inner circle of a usually closely-knit and tightly shut circle of fashion insiders.
I will update you on the book when I get to the end. In the meantime I would love to hear from you and your thoughts on Grace, her work and/ or the book!
