Fash­ion Climb­ing: A New York Life

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Know -

Who: The late fash­ion mav­er­ick who in­vented street-style pho­tog­ra­phy with his columns in The New York Times.

In a nut­shell: Like step­ping back­stage at a fash­ion show in the ’70s. Life les­sons: His phi­los­o­phy was: “If you don’t take money, they can’t tell you what to do.” He rarely ate or drank at all the fash­ion par­ties he was in­vited to. He also al­ways wore a dust­man’s jacket. Re­spect. Celebrity men­tions: Mostly high, high­so­ci­ety names you’ve prob­a­bly not heard of. He spent his life sur­rounded by celebrity (Anna Win­tour once said “We all dress for Bill”)… but didn’t give a damn about any of it. Wild sto­ries: That time he ac­ces­sorised with two chick­ens cov­ered in glit­ter, brought them to a party and all hell broke loose. £16.99, Chatto & Win­dus
