Fashion Quote

As a tribute to Mr. Cunningham I would like to share something he said in the wonderful 2010 documentary Bill Cunningham New York that I’ve never forgotten:

“The wider world perceives fashion as frivolity that should be done away with. The point is that fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you can do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.”
