Patricia Field, known for raising the standards for the world of fashion glamour when she costumed Sex and the City, brought New York style straight to the catwalk of the international fashion week of Greece. Imagine our excitement when we were informed that not only were we to meet her, but we would help her set up her pop-up store as well! Experiences like these don’t just happen every day, do they?
On Friday March 29th, Workshopaholics arrived at the lobby where the magic was about to happen… Under the guidelines of Patricia, we immediately started to realize the concept she had in mind. Vogue hats and T-shirts, Keith Haring items, hand painted sweatshirts by Scooter Laforge and a very special group designed by David Dalrymple were to be displayed within her pop-up boutique, offering the visitors of MB AXDW the chance to buy iconic Patricia Field items, throughout the four days of the event. It was such a unique experience working with her!
During the set-up #2
Patricia presented her new collection for men and women, closing the fashion week with great success. Inspirational, daring and colorful outfits dominated the catwalk and impressed the audience, while an original mix of hip-hop, rap and Greek rebetiko gave the impulse of the show. One thing is sure, we all enjoyed it and we are waiting for Pat to come back!
