The worldwide phenomenon that is Street Style today, finds its origins way before the Sartorialist days. It would be fair to say that Street Style emerged the minute Bill Cunningham got a camera.
For decades, the Photography living legend has been riding his bike in the busy streets of New York, in search of Fashion & Style, becoming an influencer in his own rights, a sheer contrast to the modest character that he is.
“I’ve said many times that we all get dressed for Bill.” Anna Wintour
“There’s no reasons to be doom and gloom and think that Fashion is finished. The Fashion show is definitely on the streets, always has been and always will be.” Bill Cunningham
