“After more than 25 years at American Vogue, Grace Coddington will assume the role of Creative Director at Large and take on additional projects outside the magazine,” said a spokesperson. “She will work on several Vogue fashion shoots throughout the year.”
“I’m not running away from Vogue, because it has opened so many doors,” Coddington told Business of Fashion. “But it will be nice to collaborate, and nice to go out [and] give talks to people.”
The decision came from discussions with her friend and long-time collaborator, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who Coddington says recognised that she “wanted to branch out a little bit”.
