Grab of the Week: a memoir of a fashion icon


Published:

Grace Coddington is Anna Wintour’s right hand woman, and she is one of the most powerful people in fashion. A former model, Coddington has held the title of Creative Director of American Vogue for more than 20 years. Now, at 71, she has released a memoir, finally giving us the chance to fuel our obsession with her (and that flaming red hair) even more so than we first caught a glimpse of the true Grace in The September Issue.

Just released last week, the memoir will be a surefire hit with any one who appreciates fashion.

Grace: A Memoir, by Grace Coddington, $45. Available at Indigo Eaton Centre

Tucked in a NoBlo industrial zone, Brave Leather has been around since back in 1992 when founder Scott Irvine got his start hawking belts on the city streets. Fast forward a few years and while Brave also turns out bags and jewellery (choker, anyone?), belts remain the label’s biggest pull.
