[NYFW Recap] A Fashion Girls’ Dream Come True: Bill Cunningham took my PICTURE!!

Any true fashion admirer knows of the iconic and legendary, Bill Cunningham.  Many in the fashion industry have deemed him the creator of what has now become widely known as ‘Street Style Photography’.  This past spring I had the priviledge of watching the documentory, ‘Bill Cunningham New York’, which was a 10-yr labor of love for Richard Press & Philip Gefter. 

I was educated on 80+ yr. old New York Times photographer, Bill Cunningham.  For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours”. Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair.

So needless to say, seeing a snapping camera approaching me and immediately recognizing Bill’s unmistakable blue smock and head of pure white hair behind that camera I did what any other fashion admirer is suppose to do: POSE! I could not have dreamed for a better ending to my NYFW SP/SU ’12 fashion extravaganza. The following are photos of the outfit that were deemed “Bill Cunningham Approved”:

32 more days!!

  

You guessed it everyone, I’ve got 32 more days until I join the ranks of women who are now officially referred to as a ‘Mrs.’ and will forever retire my title of ‘Miss’.  I am still unsure of how I ultimately feel about this, but what I do know is that I am completely and utterly consumed with a joy and happiness that words will never be able to describe.  Why many ask? Because I get to spend the rest of my life with someone who not only feels exactly the same way I do about me, but ultimately because they make me a better person.
I’m going to be taking a momentary hiatus to focus in on the task at hand: Ensure that every single wedding detail is not only addressed but insanely micromanaged.
So, I will see you all in October! Until then, stay fabulously chic and don’t forget these amazing words that I believe every woman should live by, ” ‘Style’ is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.”  xoxo
