Funnily enough was flicking through an old Harper's Bazaar (2004? 2006?) and came across one of those Contributors pages which included him. I've typed up his section
As a former stylist and now as Fashion Features Director for the London magazines 10 and 10+, Fashion Features Editor at i-D magazine, Contributing Fashion Writer for The Independent and self-claimed "guest star at Harper's BAZAAR", Huckbody is a very busy man.... (then it lists the pieces he wrote for that particular issue).
- The last movie he watched was Shirley Valentine - because he "needed a good laugh".
- His all-time favourite writeres are Truman Capote (Answered Prayers is "pure genius"), John Steinbeck and Jeanette Winterson
- Is currently working on reports for London, Milan and Paris shows (see next month's issue for the whole story)
I remember coming across some articles that he wrote in old issues of Harper's Bazaar - after all he used to be its Fashion Features Director I believe, as well as work as a fashion features writer in the UK (Elle I think, and a newspaper or two?)
Hmmm I don't think he left voluntarily if you catch my drift I wonder what he's up to now?
^^From those issues that he edited and i got, i felt like he was in over his head in the position. His Bazaar was disjointed and lacked good content, plus he was heavy on the re-prints. Australian Bazaar always had them, but it never felt like they overshadowed the original features, just imho.
Just a random comment: I think Grazia is actually quite a good read and it is cheap and current - sometimes you feel it is better to spend your money on Grazia than waiting for a month to get bloody expensive-and-boring Vogue AU / Harper's Bazaar.
