I never knew Bill Cunningham, and in fact I didn’t really know anything about him until someone at a fashion show mentioned him.
They gave me that “you haven’t heard of Bill Cunningham?” look.
In the fashion world, Bill Cunningham probably was as well known as Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
I saw Bill a few times in and around New York Fashion Week. I watched him as he moved unobtrusively through the crowd, raising his Nikon to his eye to take a few shots here and there.
