25 June 2016 RIP Bill Cunningham.

The inventor of street style photography and the original fashion blogger, is a man not only of images but of words. This video records his philosophy of life and gives the viewer an insight into beauty, how it is captured and ultimately lived.

His 8 Words of Wisdom are as follows:

#1 3 Keys to Fashion Reporting
#2 "Don't Take the Money"
#3 Fashion is the "Armour" to Survive Life
#4 Paris "Educates the Eye"
#5 "I'm Interested in Clothes"
#6 Piaggi: "Poet with Clothes"
#7 I Try to Play a Straight Game"
#8 "He Who Seeks Beauty Will Find It"

The background music is Take Five by Dave Brubeck and the images are from the documentary Bill Cunningham New York (2010).

The Three Graces - Elegance, Beauty and Style.
My Philosophy for a sublime way of living.
My aim - to bring a touch of old world grace and discreet glamour to the everyday.
"Having class - it's not half the battle - it's the whole war"
