Bill Takes a Tumble

If you haven't seen the documentary Bill Cunningham New York yet, drop what you're doing, head over to Netflix and watch it. If you have, then you know all about the New York Times's adorable elderly fashion photographer who has documented the street style of New York for decades (and for NO pay). After watching the documentary in my fashion design history class, I was fascinated by Bill, who bikes around Manhattan daily spotting trends, which come together in the New York Times, which publishes a collage of his photographs, featuring that week's trend, weekly. He also has "On The Street" videos that he narrates on the NYTimes website weekly.

As if we needed more reasons to love him, Cunningham once again showed his dedication to his work this fashion week, when he was hit by SUV right outside of the Reed Krakoff. W's beauty director, Jane Larkworthy (@wmagjane) tweeted about the incident, saying while Cunningham was hit, that he was fine - in fact, he got right back up and started shooting again. Nothing can break this man, it seems! You've got to love someone who's that dedicated to his craft. Not even a brush with an SUV (we're not even talking a baby hybrid here) can get Bill down, and he'll be around for years to come to share his photos with us.



Is he not the cutest old man you've ever seen in your life?
