The Industry:Happy Birthday, Grace!

20 Apr

Today is the 70th birthday of our favorite fashion editor, Grace Coddington, the supremely talented Creative Director of U.S. Vogue. We all know fashion is a business, but there is a healthy dose of fantasy and aspiration involved in the presentation of it to the masses, and no one has done fashion as fantasy better than Miss Coddington. Her breathtaking photo stories standout against an increasingly formulaic, celeb-obsessed editorial.  By most accounts, she stole the documentary The September Issue from her boss, Anna Wintour, and aspiring fashion editors everywhere fell in  love with her steely resolve to maintain the vision of her editorials. We are not- so-secretly waiting for the day Grace takes her well-deserved place at the top of the masthead at Vogue.
