About the Author

Patricia Field has been pushing the boundaries of style for more than five decades. Her distinctive approach to dressing has been widely popularized through her work in costume design, most notably for Sex and the City.

For her work on the long-running HBO series, Field won an Emmy Award. She also received an Academy Award nomination for The Devil Wears Prada, as well as enduring recognition for her contributions on series such as Ugly Betty, Hope & Faith, Younger, and, most recently, Emily in Paris.

A native New Yorker, Field opened her eponymous boutique in 1966. Since selling the fashion landmark in 2016, Field has reinvented herself again, this time as the curator of ARTFashion, a gallery comprised entirely of original, made-to-order, handcrafted pieces by a select group of talented visual artists.
