New York Fashion Week was habituated to have the street style photographer, Bill Cunningham, around. Till this edition, though, as he is no longer with us since this June. 

New York could not get tired of Bill Cunningham's style, his always on blue jacket and his eye focus. Now, New York Fashion Week continues without him but never forgetting his talent.

Therefore, the photographers from the fashion week all dressed up in blue jackets under the idea of Catherine Bennett, the managing director of IMG Fashion Events.

"Though he's no longer with us, Bill Cunningham's legacy lives on. We see his influence every day on the streets of New York, and we miss him. As New York Fashion Week kicks off, we acknowledge this incredible man through the individuals who will carry on his passion for life and love of fashion.", Catherine Bennett said. 

Places in New York have filled with the photographer's spirit: 50 bistro chairs were all decorated in blue in the Bryant Park, also on the intersection between the 5th Avenue and the 57th, where the photographer spent a lot of time shooting, a temporary marker was created named Bill Cunningham Corner. 

It is a fantastic commemoration for a photographer and the world of fashion is continuing to do so, maintaining this way the iconic energy of the visual artist.
