â€œI like my money where I can see it, hanging in my closet.â€ â€“ Carrie Bradshaw.Â
Now you too can see Carrieâ€™s (and Samâ€™s, and Mirandaâ€™s and Charlotteâ€™s) money in the fleshâ€¦ or should I say cloth?
World renowned, award winning Sex and The City stylist â€“ Patricia Field â€“ has arrived on Australian shores.Â Bringing with her some of her most famous outfits from the successful HBO series, Field is hosting a world premiere exhibition from the 1st to 31st of March at Chadstone shopping centre.
Curated by Field herself, the exhibition will boast some of the most famous dresses and accessories from the 6-year, 6 season series and the two movies.Â The iconic outfits will include the vintage white flower dress from the opening of the first Sex and The City movie, the Julian McDonald studded dress that Miranda wears to Stanford and Anthonyâ€™s wedding in the second movie, and the Versace ruffled gown Carrie wears when she desperately awaits Aleksandr Petrovsky in Paris, which travelled first class to Australia in itâ€™s own crate.
Perhaps the most iconic outfits that will be displayed at the exhibition are Carrieâ€™s Vivienne Westwood wedding dress, partnered with the bridesmaids dresses originally worn by Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha.Â Zac Posen originally designed all the bridal party dresses and when time came for Field to begin to make preparations for the exhibition, Mirandaâ€™s dress had somehow become lost in translation.Â For the sake of the showcase, it has been re-created.
Working closely with the designers of the clothes and Chadstone shopping centre, Field has curated a timeless collection of clothes from the likes of Sonia Rykiel, Versace, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior.
Being named as part of Time Magazines 100 Most Influential Fashion Icons of All Time last year, Field is single-handedly responsible for helping women around the globe identify their personal style and for creating one of the most stylish fictional characters to ever come to fruition.
Check out the exhibition from the 1st â€“ 31st of March at Chadstone Shopping Centre, Melbourne.
