Julie Kavanagh, an early assistant and friend, writes for Intelligent Life about fashion editor supreme, Grace Coddington. Formerly a model, Coddington has made an indelible mark on styling and the magazine editorial as a creative art in itself. Looking at her work in British and American Vogue, her singular vision is apparent, her pieces often taking on epic theatrical narratives conceived to bring the particular historical and social contexts of a place or piece of clothing to the fore. Check out Kavanagh's article, it's well worth the read.
