Drawing on Fashion History: A Sneak Peek at Grace Coddington's Illustrations.
Grace, the memoir penned by Vogue’s Creative Director, Grace Coddington, hits stores in November, and while we have already given you an excerpt, what it leaves out is Coddington’s great talent for illustration—which is also showcased in the book. She is well-known for sketching looks as they come down the runway from her front-row perch during fashion week, but her drawings also take on a distinctly personal, and often humorous, tone. From childhood memories to her first day on the job as both a model and fashion editor to her big loves (including, of course, her cats), these remarkable, hand-drawn pictures reveal yet another dimension to an already famously fascinating woman.
