With Grace

Top of my gift-giving list is Grace’s recently released memoir. We worked together for 10 years and I can attest that Grace is a true force of nature, tempered by her wicked sense of humor. Exacting and forthright, like Anna, she made my job easy because she knew what she wanted. I am thrilled that she finally put her thoughts and sketches into a book.

  • I pre-ordered a signed copy from Dashwood Books on Bond Street (amazing tiny bookstore with one of the greatest collection of photo books you will ever see). I met the owner, David Strettel many years ago when we both assisted Pamela Hansen. Can’t wait to get my copy of her memoir! I wish I had her 2003 book, which now sells for $2-4000!

  • I enjoyed reading the excerpt from her memoir in the recent issue of Vogue. I can’t wait to get the book for myself, and I will also be giving the book as a gift to some friends.

  • This is a gift I gave to myself : ) and I just started reading it this past weekend. I love that every chapter starts with “In which our heroine…” Preston, you are so lucky to have worked with my heroine with the red hair, still fabulous and fashionable at 70, Grace Coddington! Sounds like a great post one of these days for Keep it Chic!

  • This is top of my Christmas list! Grace Coddington has been over in the UK doing interviews and signings, it’s been wonderful to hear/read her thoughts.
