Grace Coddington on Nicolas Ghesquiere's Future in Fashion

Grace Coddington Doesn't Want Nicolas Ghesquière to "Walk Away" From Fashion


Could Nicolas Ghesquière be thinking about a hiatus from fashion? Grace Coddington has seen more than one brilliant design career put on pause — or worse, come to an end —and hopes the same thing won't happen to her close friend Ghesquière, who's leaving Balenciaga at the end of the month.

"John Galliano, whom I adored — gone; Helmut Lang, major talent — gone," said Coddington in an interview with The New York Times. "Hopefully Nicolas won't just give up and walk away. He's too good, too strong, too brilliant, too passionate."

Coddington said she rode out the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy with Ghesquière at the Carlyle Hotel, where a number of industry names stayed after the storm. Perhaps Ghesquière let something slip while Coddington and her cats "sat with him" in his room there?

Whatever Ghesquière has planned, Coddington has added her name to a star-studded list of people who want Ghesquière to stay in fashion. Earlier this month, Karl Lagerfeld said that it's "not a bad idea" for the designer to start his own line.
