Grace Coddington: «Trends are boring, I would not even worry about them»
«Part of me just does not want to face the latest technology. It seems to me that such things have changed the world. Now everything has become so multifunctional and versatile that it becomes difficult for people to focus even on what they do and where they are».
«Fashion changes all the time, it becomes rougher. I would like to see fashion shows smaller. I would like them not to have extra people. I want you to go on the fashion show and just focus on clothes. And I want the designer to spend more time. On creating clothes, searching for the best materials and thinking over your own idea, and not on borrowing someone else’s».
«There are black girls who seem to me very beautiful. But there are those that I do not like. The same with white, some of which I find simply disgusting. It’s not about the color of the skin, But in beauty, fervor and character».
«I always thought that people should concentrate on their work, and not every fashionable shit like«I want to be a celebrity».
«Trends are boring, I would not even worry about them. Just look for beautiful clothes».
«I hope that cooperation with Anna Wintour is not like marriage. I was married twice, and every time it stopped in six months. At the same time, my relationship with Anna continues for 26 years».
«I love to go down in the subway in the morning. There are so many beautiful people there! It is a great pity that I live just three stops from our office In Times Square. As soon as I have time to think about, who is that strange man in the corner, it’s time to go out».
«I’m not an artist. I’m a creative person, but still only one of those who helps the photographer».
«There is a difference between art and fashion photography. The plot of shooting is changing, but first of all you need to think about clothes».
«My cats are not only adorable and calming companions, they also serve as a constant source of inspiration. Row after row I did sketches of c images of cats, which hang on the wall in our house in Hampton. And this is only part of hundreds of those that I have drawn over the past 25 years».
«No matter how much cosmetics you have with yourself, in most life situations, friends and connections save, and not powder and blush».
