This is New York Fashion Week and one of its staples is noticeably missing from the scene: New York Times fashion and street style photographer, Bill Cunningham. He was a Fashion Week presence for nearly 40 years, and he and his signature blue jacket are absent – Cunningham died in June at the age of 87. To kick off the event, Day One of Fashion Week held a charming tribute to Bill Cunningham, as working fashion photographers donned blue jackets and arranged their chairs in the shape of his camera. Now that’s a fashion moment!

And The Fashion Word of the Day, is Blue

Bill Cunningham: The New York Times

Bill Cunningham: The New York Times

When Bill Cunningham of The New York Times speaks, I listen. And the fashion word of the day, is blue. Shades of the color blue have been popular this winter and in fact made a huge splash just a few weeks ago during New York’s Fashion Week. Says Cunningham: “It’s not that it’s a trend; I think it just cheers people up. And after a tough winter they need cheering up …  So much can be done with fashion; it’s so imaginative how you put it together so it appeals to many people. That doesn’t mean you run out and buy a blue coat, but if you have one, mix it in with everything.”

I think this makes great fashion sense. Blue is an engaging color, and yes, people do need cheering up this cold winter. I’m buying it!
