GRACE: A MEMOIR // GRACE CODDINGTON + KAREN ELSON - A CONVERSATION

Wednesday, December 26, 2012




A few weeks back I was spectator to an especially unique and delightful treat - something that made my inner fashion nerd squeal. 

Creative director of Vogue, Grace Coddington,
so graciously (haha, I crack myself up) came to Nashville to speak about her recent book, Grace: A Memoir


Downtown Nashville's Frist Center for the Visual Arts hosted the event which was totally sold out. Tickets were about $50, but included a copy of Grace's memoir which you could have signed afterward. 

For the fashion obsessed, Grace needs no introduction. 

Made famous by being a true master at her craft, and even more so after the release of the spectacular fashion filled documentary, chronicling what goes on behind the scenes at Vogue during its most anticipated monthly issue -  The September Issue.

What was even equally as thrilling, was that supermodel and songbird Karen Elson was the interviewer of the evening. Engaging Grace in conversation over her memoir, and sharing similar experiences and mutual hilarious fashion industry moments. You may also recognize Karen as the former wife of dreamboat Jack White - who was also present at the reading. 

You can find Karen's music on her website HERE and a great photo stream of her in model mode from Style.com HERE










Grace divulged childhood memories, along with an impressive recollection of the ins and outs of her modeling career, adding some wit and wisdom along the way for those interested in getting into the business. 

I was so thrilled she took the time out to visit Nashville! Thanks Grace! We feel special!
