Am supremely excited about the upcoming documentary of Bill Cunningham, highlighted by The Telegraph today.
Cunningham, 81, has documented street fashion in NYC for the past 50 years navigating through those famed streets on a rusty bike with a trusty Nikon.
This seemingly humble creative focused on every walk of life, and not just the 5th Avenue money, making the doc’ more about ordinary people who just happen to be sporting something a little special.
Apparently being somewhat of a recluse (the guy sleeps on a camp-bed surrounded by filing cabinets and he has 4 outfits in his wardrobe, ) the director and producer took 8 years to persuade him to make to film and even then it was a struggle.
Can you believe this? This guy is so ‘unfashion’ it’s fashion.
Expect to see oodles of fashion-ites and celebrities coming out of the woodwork for their 10c of stories and repartee about the guy – even so it has to be worth a peek.
Out in NYC from March 16th – International release also on the cards.
