A very special event is happening this October. Patricia Field, the award-winning costumer of HBO’s Sex and The City (series and movies), The Devil Wears Prada, and many other media projects, is bringing her ArtFashion collection to Catskill, NY as a benefit for Greene County Council on the Arts (GCCA).
Ms. Field’s ArtFashion show has been making waves in the art community from Miami’s Art Basel to Berlin to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City to Mykonos, Greece this July in part because it’s an experience like none other—an exciting blend of art and fashion. That the iconic, raven-haired Ms. Field is bringing her show to Catskill is already major—that she is doing so as a benefit for GCCA is also a major coup, one orchestrated by long-time GCCA supporter, Catskill resident, and friend of Ms. Field’s, Michele Saunders.
The Patricia Field ArtFashion show will be held the weekend of October 6 and 7, 2017 (the same weekend as the Hudson Valley Dance Festival, but not in conflict with any of the festival’s events) at Joe’s Garage-Catskill, a new industrial event space on Main Street and underwriter of the event. The schedule includes two runway shows: Friday, October 6, at 7 pm followed by cocktails and music, and on Saturday, October 7 at 8:30 pm followed by a dance party. Ms. Field will also host a pop-up shop at Joe’s garage on Saturday, October 7 from 11 am to 7 pm.
Several factors make this an event not to be missed. In addition to Ms. Field’s stable of artists, including Scooter LaForge, Ben Copperwheat, Jody MORLOCK (to name a few), will be joined by several Hudson Valley artists, including Portia Munson, Justin Love and Nina Isabelle. Sets are being designed by Geoff Howell of Geoff Howell Studios, and legendary DJ, producer and re-mixer Tedd Patterson will provide music and sound.
All items in the show will be for sale, and a portion of sales will go to benefit GCCA. Ticket prices are reasonable at $20 online and $25 at the door. GCCA expects this once-in-a-lifetime event to sell out, so mark your calendars and buy tickets now! Watch for updates on www.greenearts.org.
