Patricia Field, Fashion's Beloved Costume Designer, Has Been Cutting the Backs Off Her Shoes

Curated via Twitter from W magazine’s twitter account….

In early 2015, there came an end of an era: The flame-haired costume designer Patricia Field, best known for her work outfitting Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, shuttered her namesake boutique on the Bowery, which at that point, after five decades of selling its special blend of neon, glitter, rhinestone, and patent leather ensembles, had more than established its status as a New York institution.

Still, a couple years later, at 75, Field is still going strong not only with her business—she maintains an online shop, plus her styling for TV shows like Younger—but with the neighborhood, which she's maintained ties to through her work with the Lower Eastside Girls Club, a group she's considered as much a part of the community as she is ever since she discovered it 10 years ago.

The nonprofit, which helps impoverished girls plan for their futures, honored her last year at their annual spring fling, but at this last week's benefit at the Bowery Hotel Field got to let loose, hanging with Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny.
