Patricia Field Q&A With American Television

07 August 2012, 14.48 | Posted in Television, celebrity | No comments »

Speaking of tv wardrobe choices, Patricia Field has some very fascinating things to say about her career as a fashion designer. There’s a short clip going around that speaks to the back story of the famous Sex and the City Carrie tutu and nameplate necklace, but the video above is 49 juicy minutes long and is much more in depth. According to press accompanying the video:

[Field] discusses at length her role as designer for the long-running series Sex and the City and the impact the show’s fashion had on popular culture. She details her design process and her role to “elevate” the story a little higher through beautiful clothing. She outlines other television shows on which she worked, such as Spin City and Ugly Betty, and her contributions to the film “The Devil Wears Prada” with Meryl Streep. She also gives her advice to aspiring television costume designers and discusses her future career aspirations.

The interview was conducted by Bonnie Datt in October 2011, for American Television as part of a series called “Emmy TV Legends.”



Vogue China & Elle Mexico Ft. Prada

ElleMexicoPrada09 12 412x540 Vogue China & Elle Mexico Ft. Prada

The matching print pantsuit, the statement piece for Prada’s Autumn 2012 line, has snagged two prominent covers for September: Elle Mexico and Vogue China.  And these are two I’m aware of, no doubt there are more. Just last week I was saying that the masculine and matchy-matchy aspect of the pantsuit might be a bit much for the average fashion lover, but this kind of press has the power to turn an item into a must-have if only as a piece to add to one’s collection.

On the next page, see the cover (a foldout) for Vogue China.

Using the theme of a chess match, Prada highlights the matchy-matchy leisure suits from the label’s Autumn 2012 collection. Personally I think they are awesome but I wonder how popular this collection will be if only because they’re a bit more conceptual and lack the femininity of Prada’s blockbuster Spring 2012 offerings.

Stephen Colbert interviews Anna Wintour who is doing press related to the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations,” exhibit, currently showing at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. The q&a is a touch stilted, but utlimately sweet and a hoot, not to mention informative as it relates to the exhibit.
