Bill Cunningham On The Street

 While I hammer on the dress pattern, a little diversion.


I spend a lot of time staring at designers' work on line and in the papers. An all day extravagance at the end of the long summer job was watching Bill Cunningham’s On The Street narrated slide shows on the New York Times website. One after another after another. Binge!


I love these slide shows, and this is one of my favorites. I have folks I follow on his pages (damn, those photos are SMALL on the page of the Sunday paper).

My fashion muse is Louise Doktor
Scanned from the tiniest photo on the page 2011? 2012? The three sleeve raincoat

1982

There's a story about her waiting to happen.


Not an interesting choice for Louise, but an introduction to a regular of his pages.

It is worth checking out the documentary about BC, named after him, to watch how he works. And watch how many itty bitty photos he crams into the pages now. Whoa Bill! Too many is not enough of any of them.
