The Finest Street Looks Pictures From New York Style Week
New York Fashion Week just lately came to a close last Thursday. It was a whirlwind of a week – getting up, having breakfast, shooting off to a show (or 3), and then trying to be at five different areas at once! Hectic, I tell you!
I wasn’t the only 1 who had to run about like a maniac while wearing heels. A lot of journalists, magazine editors, fashion designers, personal style blog and photographers were all mad enough to do the very same thing. It was a week of the survival of the fittest in fashion world.
Amongst all the collection viewings and runway exhibits, a lot of the action occurs just outside the Lincoln Centre in New York. This is wherever a lot of the primary exhibits are held, and as a result a lot of the fashion industry’s elite can be located. Street fashion photographers flock here bi-yearly during the two fashion weeks, to snap up their important pictures for their various blogs, online fashion stores (more so the stores’ blogs) and online magazine street design editions. You’ll discover that there are a lot of freelance street fashion photographers that snap shots for prestigious magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
The legendary Bill Cunningham, who was the very first ever street fashion photographer to hit the scene, personally snapped me up while I was on my way to the Alexander Wang show (much more on that later).
Mr. Cunningham has worked for various magazines and is the street fashion columnist the New York Times. His work has been admired by the likes of fashion’s most elite, such as Vogue’s Editor in Chief, Anna Wintour. There was also a documentary produced about Bill, which was released in March last year.
It was outstanding seeing Bill, being the legend that he is – and especially when he decided that I was cool enough to be photographed! What an absolute honor! It was undoubtedly and simply one of the highlights of my daily life!
