Influential, visionary, daring, cool: Katie Grand has been setting fashion’s agenda for close to twenty-five years. In fact, her career trajectory begs the question, Is there anything Grand can’t do? The gap-toothed former editor-in-chief of the era-defining English glossy LOVE, Grand has worked with and styled for the coolest brands and magazines of note ever since she studied at London’s Central Saint Martins alongside Giles Deacon and Stella McCartney. Marc Jacobs and Miuccia Prada count on the Dazed & Confused and Pop alum to work her runway magic season after season.
In this exceptional volume devoted to a career of singular moments that have redrawn the boundaries of style—including pivotal editorials, magazine covers, advertising campaigns, runway, and private ephemera—Katie Grand mines her rich past and tells us the story, in words and pictures, of her early rock-and-roll years at The Face and Pop to becoming a key player on the global fashion stage to championing what were to become some of the biggest names in fashion (Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner). She gives us behind-the-scenes access to the stories and scandals behind some of contemporary fashion’s most provocative photos.
Presiding over LOVE, one of the fashion industry’s most influential titles, for more than ten years, Grand has become the most sought-after stylist in the industry, having worked on numerous campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Balmain, Prada, Miu Miu, Giles Deacon, Bottega Veneta, and Jonathan Saunders among others. This book gives an inside view into Grand’s creative thought process and sensibility and will be a bible of empowerment for women of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate their own personal, idiosyncratic style.
