Bill Cunningham, street fashion photographer for the New York Times, is one of the best sources for picking up on trends. He discusses the latest trend of young people dressing outrageously at fashion week, describing it as a carnival. He points out the contrast between the very serious business world and the artsy, creative world of fashion. Cunningham theorizes that the younger crowd is dressing unusually, creatively, bizarrely before they have to strap down and enter the commercial world of fashion.
