Taking a Walk on the Wild Side- Navigating the Patricia Field x Ian Mellencamp Fashion Week Party

Taking a Walk on the Wild Side- Navigating the Patricia Field x Ian Mellencamp Fashion Week Party

As soon as you hear Patricia Field,  edgy and fiery goddess comes to mind, which is fitting for the myth, legend, and icon. Field pioneered the viewpoints of  what constitutes style- her fashion philosophy welcomes eclecticism, free creative thought, and understanding oneself over jumping at the newest trend. 

Field’s distinctive approach  to fashion was most notable in her costume design.  She effortlessly altered the way women dress through the hit HBO show "Sex and the City" (one of the most stylish  and sought after shows by almost every woman) and the feature films produced. For her outstanding work on Sex and the City, she  won an Emmy Award and five nominations ( yes, five!)  for Best Costume Design,  creating some of the most monumental onscreen fashions since Aubrey Hepburn at Tiffany’s. 

As a seasoned retailer for  celebrities, stylists , emerging designers, and club kids for over 50 years in  the New York City area, she sold her downtown institution and highly regarded retail property in 2016. With this, she created  and curated a new concept, ARTFASHION which was inspired by her ties to New York City art legends such as Basquiat and Keith Haring. Field works with a group of talented visual artists ( who also hosted the Patricia Field and Ian Mellencamp NYFW party) , applying their unique aesthetics to hand painted, and original clothing.

So, get comfortable and relish in the photos and commentary of  the creativeness at the Patricia Field and Ian Mellencamp event , honoring her contributions to fashion as we know it!

The meatpacking district has always held a special place in my heart for the trendy restaurants, designer stores, and home to the High Line ( a park built on top of a former railroad). That’s why I was so ecstatic to travel to this part of town for this event at Troy Liquor Bar on Hudson Street.  The bar is one of those hidden- gem type of establishments that’s easy to go undetectable ( I got really confused trying to navigate my way inside !) , requiring you to walk down a flight of stairs before you can revel in the glory( and it was an amazing sight to see ) , taking that leap of faith.

Once inside, you immediately feel an ambiance like no other. Set up like an underground fortress, the venue is adorned with brick walls , comfy lounge chairs, DJ set ( playing some of the top house music ), and pool table on one side ( sounds like a fun game night!). On the other side, there are more private secluded rooms with comfy couches which is perfect for a cozy date night or small party with friends (talk about leaving your ready bottoms at home!). Another aspect that caught my eyes with the bar is that there are pictures on the walls of many of the best rock musical artists and instruments, adding an edge that meets the candor of Field’s work.

Now, the moment we all have been waiting for: what were the styles of the evening? The styles consisted of berets, denim, shiny dresses , and patterned jackets – all in the spirit of original and distinct creative expression.
