After three decades as Creative Director at Vogue, Grace Coddington is officially stepping down effectively immediately. “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,” a spokesperson for American Vogue confirmed to Business of Fashion. “She will work on several Vogue fashion shoots throughout the year.”

According to Coddington, “I’m not running away from Vogue, because it has opened so many doors. But it will be nice to collaborate, and nice to go out [and] give talks to people. It’s just another approach. I’m certainly not going into retirement. I don’t want to sit around.”
