An Event Like None Other
A very special event happened this past 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, brought her ArtFashion collection to Catskill, NY as a benefit for Greene County Council on the Arts (GCCA).
The event – featuring two runway shows sold out both nights!
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 past 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 brought her show to Catskill was major—that she did so as a benefit for GCCA was 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 was 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 included 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 also hosted a pop-up shop at Joe’s garage on Saturday, October 7 from 11 am to 7 pm.
Several factors made 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), were joined by several Hudson Valley artists, including Portia Munson, Justin Love and Nina Isabelle. Sets designed by Geoff Howell of Geoff Howell Studios, and legendary DJ, producer and re-mixer Tedd Patterson provided music and sound.
All items in the show were for sale, and a portion of sales benefited GCCA. Ticket prices were reasonable at $20 online and $25 at the door.
