Grace Coddington Steps Down at Vogue

The tectonic plates of fashion are shifting.

Donna Karan left the company that bears her name. Ralph Lauren stepped up to become chairman and relinquished the chief executive title at his company. Harold Koda, the curator in chief of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, passed the reins to Andrew Bolton. And now Grace Coddington, the 74-year-old creative director of American Vogue, the yin to the editor Anna Wintour’s yang, and an accidental celebrity since the 2009 documentary “The September Issue,” is dialing down her role at the magazine. She will, said a spokeswoman for Condé Nast, which owns the magazine, become “creative editor at large,” doing “several” articles a year for the glossy and exploring outside opportunities.
