|Dominik and Bill Cunningham!!!!!!! Photo by Fig.|
So awesome. Fig, Dominik and Johnny are so into fashion--history, design, details, brands, wearing. Meeting style chronicler Bill Cunningham as a suburban high schooler now would be like me happening upon Woodward & Bernstein in the seventies.
Click here for Dominik's blog! He calls it Commotion Notion, and gave me permission to post the photo here. Bill Cunningham seems so gracious to have stopped for the kids. Here's the link to the post I wrote after seeing the documentary about him.
And: Here's a YouTube video about Speakeasy Vintage, where Dominik works, and where Figgy is working for the first time tomorrow, from 1 to 4. She is so excited!
I am so grateful for Dara, who told us about the shop and then for Johnny, who showed us around the shop and told Fig about Dominik and the high school Fashion Club. Nice circle of life and luck.
