“We all get dressed for Bill.” - Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief
Unassuming and unpretentious, cycling through the streets of Manhattan with his battered Nikon camera, 80-year-old Bill Cunningham doesn't exactly look like someone to hold the fashion world in thrall. Yet every week his columns in the New York Times are pored over by fashion leaders.
Bill Cunningham New York is a profile of an independent, humble and intensely private individual - untouched by the affectations of the fashion world that adores him, and deeply obsessed with practicing his own unique brand of cultural anthropology.
