To celebrate the finale of New York Fashion Week, legendary costume designer Patricia Field, queen of all things fabulous, did it up as only she can in a “California in NYC” party and trunk show. Her iconic boutique store in NoHo was the“IT” spot as fierce Fashionistas and Fashionistos came out in droves to shop, party and be seen. The two floor store used to be Pat’s old apartment and there was definitely a family feel as eclectic party-goers enjoyed complimentary cocktails through the generosity of Alacrán Tequila, Eklektikon Greek Wine, Pavan Liqueur, and killer beats by DJ Haruka Salt while shopping, making this one of the hottest parties in the City.
Outside of the store was parked a "Heart Revolution" blinged out ice cream truck where Patricia’s fans, affectionately known as “kweens,” stopped to purchase rhinestone Popsicles, then set off to styling and profiling in front of the step-and-repeat before heading into the invite-only VIP shopping event.
“Tonight we are supporting and celebrating my California designers that I decided to bring here for New York Fashion Week,” explained Patricia. Patricia has launched many new designers’ careers and has taken this opportunity to support independent California designers Rik Villa, DimePiece, Hologram City, Adeen, Richard Hallmar, Jon Burdine, and Rojas whom guests were able to meet in person at the event. Their latest collections on display in a lively party atmosphere brought back memories of “Fashion Night Out,” which was the inspiration for the event. Devyn Abdullah, winner of "The Face" TV reality series made an appearance as did many other VIPs as House of Field guests enjoyed entertainment from rapper XRS Chris and a performance by Dai Burger.
As we all say goodbye to Fashion Week, one would love to know what was Patricia Field’s favorite show at the Lincoln Center. After only a moment of thought, in her throaty Patricia Field voice she said that she enjoyed all of the shows she saw this year but specifically mentioned Ralph Lauren. “In the fashion world, Ralph Lauren is exalted!” she announced.
