“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.

For decades, the bicycle-riding (29 bikes in his life time) cultural anthropologist Bill Cunningham has been inventively chronicling fashion trends for the Times Style section.

This documentary “BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK” is a delicate, funny and poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

Although I studied fashion design, with time, I now see that actually my interest and curiosity had far more to do with the way people put things together, and why, than it had to do with fashion itself.

Biographies are my first love and this documentary does not disappoint.
