Carrie Bradshaw would be nothing without Patricia Field. The Sex and the City costume designer is responsible for Carrie’s iconic style by creating and has held on to some of Bradshaw’s most memorable outfits and accessories. From the 'Carrie' necklace to the infamous tutu from the opening credits, Field shaped the sex columnist’s one of a kind look. In an interview for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation, Field opens up about setting up shop downtown in New York’s countercultural heyday. Throughout her storied career, the fashionista/entrepreneur has kept her finger on the pulse of youth culture, peddling pieces for over three decades. You can catch the entire 2.5 hour interview on the Academy’s website, but we’ve got some choice excerpts here.
