I've always loved designer Patricia Field's super-clubby style - I made a trip to her shop a part of my New York itinerary the first time I visited the city! - and she was the woman who partially made Sex and the City the hit that it was for dressing STJ (see how close I am to my favourite Jewish actress...) in such beautiful clothes. And it seems that SATC has led La Field to bigger movie projects, her latest incursion being dressing Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. The International Herald Tribune's fashion scribe SUSIE MENKES met Field for a chat as she opened her new shop in the Bowery. The iconic newspaper is now officially renamed International Hair-ald Tribeca!
