Black Excellence: Simbarashe Cha

Simbarashe has been a contributor to The Times since 2020, when he began photographing for the Metro section. He went on to write about and capture street style and fashion in his Fashion Week Diaries and Style Outside columns. He has photographed and reported for The Times from New York, London, Paris, Milan and Dakar, showcasing street style at Paris Fashion Week, Easter hats, men in pink, the layered look, Wimbledon looks and more. Simbarashe’s fresh eye and singular voice are anchored in the tradition of the beloved Bill Cunningham — in which fashion coverage comes alive through people off the runways as much as on.
