Grace Coddington at New York Fashion Week

by Lee Oliveira on February 21, 2011

Attending the big fashion shows in New York was a fantastic opportunity. Sitting close to some of the most influential people in the fashion industry was just overwhelming.

As I was leaving the Diane Von Furstenburg show, I managed to capture Grace Coddington the Creative Director for American Vogue. Even though she was surrounded by her bodyguards, she did manage to give me a wave.

Thanks Grace!
