I had known of Bill Cunningham for quite some time, but I didn’t truly appreciate his passion for what he does until I watched the documentary Bill Cunningham New York. I find his love for fashion and street style so incredible and inspiring, and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to watch him work the crowd outside Lincoln Center!
It was after watching this documentary that I started to think once more about personal style, the direction I wanted to take, and about tackling the fears I’ve been holding onto.
I’d highly recommend anyone watch the film, which is available at Amazon, Target and on Netflix.
I’ve seen the documentary – Bill is certainly a mainstay in the fashion industry and a bit of a quirk too. I can’t believe he still insists on shooting in film!
Thank for the recommendations. I will have to check out the documentary when I have free time. Hope you’re having a great time in NYC.
Added to my instant queue to watch tonight. Thank you, Kelly!
“Bill Cunningham, New York” is currently on hulu! My favorite Cunningham line: “He who seeks beauty will find it.”
Thanks for the Hulu tip!
I so love his work! I haven’t seen the documentary yet but I’ve been meaning to.
I liked getting to know more about him in the documentary. The little details, like the fact that his choice in jacket is very meaningful to him.
Wow, a legend in real life! Must have been amazing. I’ll have to watch that documentary!
