New to Our DVD Collection: Bill Cunningham New York

With New York City’s fashion week  just over, I would highly recommend watching Bill Cunningham New York . Who is Bill Cunningham?  He happens to be the 80+ New York Times photographer who has been documenting  the fashions of New York for decades.  Riding around the city on his bicycle, Cunningham snaps your photo and  doesn’t care whether you are a celebrity or just someone with a sense of style.  “More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York,”  states Oscar de la Renta.  This biographical documentary is also a moving portrait of an artist who beats to his own drum.    I heartily recommend watching it!
