Toronto Fashion Jobs – Bill Cunningham New York

Bill Cunningham was on his trusty Schwinn photographing the best of Manhattan street-style before many of today’s posers and snappers were even born. Now one of the fashion industry’s most understated yet esteemed stars is finally getting his picture-perfect moment with the release of Bill Cunningham New York directed by Richard Press.

As a milliner, Women’s Wear Daily columnist, contributor to the original Details magazine and resident New York Times Style editor for “On the Street” and “Evening Hours,” the 82-year-old photographer has been documenting some of the most memorable style images of the last four decades. The white-haired man in his signature blue workman’s jacket remains a beloved fixture of New York’s fashion and social scenes, even though the photographer sees himself as nothing more than a mere fashion enthusiast, stating “I’m only interested in the clothes.”

As he snaps photos on the runway circuit, city streets and evening soirées rain or shine Bill is always smiling and laughing but never steering away from his pursuit of trendy, beautiful and distinctive style. “I let the street speak to me,” he says, adding there are no shortcuts to what he does and that celebrity figures are of no interest to his photographs.

A film about finding true passion and happiness in all we do, Bill Cunningham New York will leave you grinning from ear to ear, and confident enough to walk down the street in an outfit that will surely turn heads.
