>> Grace Coddington has confirmed that she is working with former Men's Vogue editor-in-chief Jay Fielden (who she previously collaborated with on Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue) on a memoir.
“We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project,” she told WWD. “I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.” The book will cover her early life in Wales, her time as a model in '60s London, the car accident that changed her career path, and the subsequent years spent as a stylist and editor at both British and American Vogue. Fielden and Coddington have reportedly signed with literary agent Elyse Cheney (who has worked with the likes of Dave Eggers and Benjamin Kunkel) and plan to shop the finished book proposal to publishers this Fall. Fielden has already accompanied Coddington to the July couture shows in Paris and started conducting interviews with her network of friends and colleagues.
