Grace Bernal’s California Style: Remembering My Friend Bill

He was a friend I never met and he was really a mentor to me with regard to fashion. I always felt a connection with New York’s quintessential street photographer and would joke he was my boyfriend. Platonic! Bill Cunningham was unique and passionate about his photographic art. He will always be remembered for his iconic photographs of Garbo, Jackie O, Grace Codington, and just anyone he thought was fashionably creative on the streets. He did it so gracefully too which is why no one will ever take his place. I can only imagine what he’s thinking of LeBron James right now. His memoir of photos and stories over years of work he put in, is coming due in September. Itys filled with photos and stories he kept behind closed doors. The memoir is written by Bill Cunningham and titled Fashion Climbing. How he wrote made is what made his voice unique. If you have a love of fashion and art you don’t want to miss Fashion Climbing in September. Wish you were here Bill to sign my copy. Forever Remembered, Forever Missed!

“The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don’t see at the fashion shows. You find information for readers so they can visualize themselves.”  -Bill Cunningham
