Street style photographer Bill Cunningham has passed away, Puma teams up with the New York City Ballet, an exhibition exploring vulgarity in fashion, and more news from the fashion trenches in June.

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.”
