Clothing: True Love

Hi Fashion Fans! I had the wonderful pleasure of watching the Biography of Mr. Bill Cunningham (Photographer - NY Times) on Netflix last night. To say this film was spell binding is an understatement. It's the true story of the passion, fantasy and heartbreak of arguably the greatest fashion photographer of our time. I implore you to watch the documentary for yourselves, but to leave you with a few key snippets: Bill rides his bike everywhere to photograph in NYC, he is 85 years young and he tears up 6 figure paychecks!  The icing on the cake is: He is a fellow BOSTONIAN!!!!!!!

Receiving a glimpse of the life and times of Mr. Cunningham was so moving and meaningful to me I wanted to share it with all of you. "Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life. I don't think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.”- Bill Cunningham
