^Coddington Memoir...

Quote:
CODDINGTON MEMOIR: Grace Coddington, creative director of Vogue and breakout star of last year’s documentary “The September Issue,” is working on a memoir, WWD has learned. Coddington and former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden — whom the red-headed stylist enlisted to help write the book after being approached by agents and publishers looking to translate her “September Issue” fame into a bestseller — are preparing a proposal for her autobiography.

Coddington confirmed she is working with Fielden. “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project,” she told WWD, adding: “I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The book will cover Coddington’s early life in Wales, her modeling days in Sixties London, the car accident that changed her career path and her ascendancy through fashion’s ranks as a stylist and editor at British Vogue and, later, its American counterpart.

Coddington and Fielden have apparently signed with literary agent Elyse Cheney (who’s worked with the likes of Dave Eggers, Benjamin Kunkel, James Wolcott and A.O. Scott) and plan to shop the finished proposal to publishers this fall. In the meantime, they have been spending a lot of time together. Fielden accompanied Coddington to the Paris couture shows in July and has been interviewing her network of friends, as well as colleagues, according to sources.

This is not a first-time collaboration between the two. Fielden helped out with the writing and editing of Coddington’s 2002 coffee-table book, “Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue” (Steidl/Edition 7L) and, last October, conducted a Q&A with Coddington as part of a New York Public Library live-discussion series. — Nick Axelrod

Memories Of Grace

Quote:
GRACE CODDINGTON is adding yet another string to her bow - the legendary creative director of American Vogue is to pen her memoirs.

"We're just starting, and I think it's going to be a really fun project. I'm hoping it's going to be very rich in fashion history. It's more than just about me," says Coddington, who has teamed up with former Men's Vogue editor-in-chief Jay Fielden to put a proposal together for the autobiography.

According to WWD, Coddington and Fielden - who worked together on her 2002 coffee table book Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue - have signed with literary agent Elyse Cheney and aim to have the finished proposal with publishers this autumn. The book will cover Coddington's early life in Wales, her days as a model in the Sixties, the car accident that impacted her career direction and her work at both British and American Vogue.
