New York Fashion Week
A good example of how eveningwear is blending with daywear, with classic shapes like the pantsuit now made of shimmery materials, as seen on Chriselle Lim at the Akris show.
Transitional weather calls for a transitional look: Paola Alberdi layered a navy and red coat over a polka dot jumpsuit at the Carolina Herrera show in New York.
So this happened: a massive slideshow of 82 of my street style photos in the New York Times Styles section online. Click through for all the best looks from NY Fashion Week!
It was an honor and a privilege to shoot for the New York Times, having been a Styles section reader for pretty much my entire life. Thanks to my editors at the NYT, my fellow photographers, and all the stylish people who were kind enough to pose for us, including Ansley Dawson, Emma Sousa and Farah Alimi, pictured here in a huge rainstorm after the Marchesa show. It was a very Bill Cunningham moment, and he is very much in the thoughts of the fashion week showgoers this month.
See you in London!
I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Bill Cunningham this Saturday. He was 87, but somehow he seemed immortal to me, or at least indefatigable. Anyone who shoots street style owes him the world. There was “street” photography before Bill Cunningham, but not the sort that focused solely on fashion until he started publishing his photos in the Times.
People often ask me if I “knew” him, and the answer, as it is for most people in fashion, is both yes and no. (more…)

Graphic punch: Instagram’s Eva Chen wore graphic print in black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York.
No looking back: Anya Ziourova wore 3.1 Phillip Lim to the forward-thinking designer’s September show in NYC.
Casual chic: Ece Sukan pulls it all together with a crisp cotton top in French blue and a straw bag she scored at a market in Colombia.
Nothing says “summer” like a strong dose of color. Outside the Tome show in New York, Rachel Wang wore a pink Rodebjer dress that she accessorized with a pom pom sash and straw bag.
A stylish new player on the scene, Australian fashion blogger Chloe Hill wore red and black to the Delpozo show in New York.
Stripes, solids, and a pop of print and color that acts like a colorful throw pillow – the kind of mix that an interior designer might put together, or in this case, design and lifestyle blogger Athena Calderone of Eye Swoon.
Sharp dresser: crisp angles and textures in a blue skirt and jacket on Leigh Lezark at the Hood by Air show in New York.
A flash of red at the Tommy Hilfiger show provides a graphic punch on the streets as winter winds down.
Warmer weather means it’s time to experiment with varying sleeve lengths and layers. Denni Elias played up an embroidered floral print top with the shorter jacket arms of a military coat at the Jason Wu show.
If there is a crowd of teenage girls outside you know who may be inside: Lucky Blue Smith, Instagram phenom and male model of the moment. He exited the show in a look that channeled James Dean via Tommy Hilfiger.
