Mangue Banzima discusses the legacy of Bill Cunningham

Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016

SCAD Museum of Art, theater

Savannah, GA

601 Turner Blvd.


Join us for Mangue Banzima’s (B.F.A., fashion marketing and management, 2014) lecture on the legacy of Bill Cunningham: "In the Spirit of the Man in Blue: Picture Taking on the Street."

With more than 15 years of experience in New York City fashion, client services, management and consulting, Banzima is the founder of Qui Style, a fashion and lifestyle blog that documents and forecasts current trends on the streets of New York City. In his lecture, Banzima will discuss how his work has been influenced by Cunningham’s pioneering approach to capturing fashion trends on the streets, rather than the runway. For Banzima, “style is more than just fashion — it’s about expression, attitude and confidence. In New York City, ‘style’ is on the surface of the city — [in] its streets, stores, cafes, museums and subway cars.”
