On my bookshelf – Grace, A Memoir

Sep 5, 2013

After the workshop I was gifted a voucher by one of the attendees and I knew immediately which book would be first on the list. The weekend I bought Grace, I carried it from the back deck where I had read it that morning, to the kitchen as I prepared lunch, to the lounge as I read while Grant watched the football and then to bed as I read by dimmed light with my husband snoring beside me. It was a book that I couldn’t put down and when I turned the final page I was left wanting more. If I love a good book, then I definitely love a good book based on someone’s life. Grace Coddington has led an incredible life and I fell in love with her after watching The September Issue. Watching this woman who was incredibly grounded in spite of her surroundings and dedicated to seeing her vision come alive was inspiring. However I realised after I started reading her memoir that the documentary had only scraped the surface of who she was in terms of the fashion industry and in her own personal life.

Even if you aren’t that into the fashion industry, Grace is a beautiful memoir of an amazing life that still has many chapters unwritten with plenty of juicy stories along the way. It is a book that I know I will re-read and reference a number of times for its refreshing candor, stories of survival and sense of style.
