Fashion Week Honors for Bill Cunningham

Fashion Week will honor legendary New York Timesphotographer Bill Cunningham this season with a retrospective and window displays of his work at Bergdorf Goodman.

On view from September 5 - 16, the windows and third floor exhibit will offer a retrospective of Cunningham’s images – candid photographs of everyday New Yorkers taken on the street as they sport their fashion know-how, and of equally stylish guests at glittering evening events.

The photographer will also be honored at a private V.I.P. event at the store co-hosted by The Times and – in tribute to Cunningham’s preferred, low-emission mode of transportation around the city (his bicycle)– the New York City Department of Transportation.

Cunningham has been a photographer for The Times since December 1978. He also narrates a slide show of “On the Street” posted each week on, with additional comments and background on his photographs.
