Bergdorf Goodman and The New York Times just announced their fashion week kick-off plans, and while it might not be as wild as Justin Timberlake at Roseland, it'll be a good excuse to escape the tents for a bit. The two are teaming up to host a retrospective of Bill Cunningham's "On the Street" photographs in the department store's windows from September 5th to 16th accompanied by a proper exhibition on the 3rd floor - which means a lot of the women in the photographs will probably be shopping amongst them. "New Yorkers have their own distinct take on fashion, and no one chronicles that style better than Bill Cunningham," said Bergdorf's CEO Jim Gold. The beloved photographer's been shooting New York street style, mostly uptown, since 1978 and this is the first formally displayed collection of his work. The Department of Transportation will host a kick-off event at Bergdorf - because the only thing better known than Bill's photographs is Bill's bicycle.
