Bill Cunningham Highlights Winter Fashion in Madison Square Park
Bill Cunningham is a New York icon, who epitomizes a passion for true photojournalism that captures a visceral connection between photographer and subject. His street fashion photos have graced The New York Times for over three decades now and are always alerting us to the coming trends.
The 84 year-old’s latest piece for the NYT finds him in NoMad — on the cusp of our next winter season here in NYC. The newly compiled video showcases the beauty of Madison Square Park in autumn, just as we are gearing up for frigid air.
Cunningham ties Madison Square Park’s beauty to some of the latest sleek evening wear. He also showcases the influence of Veteran’s Day, explaining how some everyday outfits such as the military pea-coat and Burberry raincoat were directly inspired by our service men and women.
Those of us who love Bill’s enthusiasm and love for fashion (and this city) won’t be disappointed by this installment. It’s all the more exciting for us seeing so many NoMad-ers highlighted in the park, and it has us geared up for the beautiful winters we love in NYC.
Head over to the NY Times to see the latest Bill Cunningham video, and much more.
