Patricia Field, the stylist extraordinaire is responsible for Carrie Bradshaw’s infamous tutu, Miranda Priestly’s signature hair, and Betty Suarez’s red-framed glasses. She enhanced these characters with her visionary fashion sense. Even if you haven’t heard of Patricia Field, there is no doubt you’re deeply familiar with her legendary designs. Happy Clothes: A Film About Patricia Field takes a deep dive into the storied life of this iconic costume designer. Take a walk down memory lane with Field and her endless list of friends, team members, and collaborators to see how some of the most memorable film and television costumes came to life.

Featuring interviews with television fan favorites Lily Collins (Emily in Paris), Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Darren Star (creator of Sex and the City and Emily in Paris), and more, this film delves behind the scenes with Field and uncovers the thought process behind her designs. Watch to experience as she recalls incredible stories, from employing Daphne Rubin-Vega, Laverne Cox, and other NYC nightlife stars in the retail store she operated for 50 years; to her early patronage of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who sold their designs in the back of her store; to receiving an Oscar nomination as the costume designer for The Devil Wears Prada.

This film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. Actors and designers were in attendance for this documentary. A great time was had by all and it was fabulous!
