A NEW York designer famous for her work on the hit television show Sex and the City is coming to Joondalup.

Patricia Field will be this year’s ambassador for Urban Couture, which runs from February 25 to March 26.

Before the first season of Sex and the City, Field was asked to design the costumes for the series that became well-known for its fashions, particularly the many iconic looks of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie.

She went on to return as costume designer for the 2008 movie Sex and the City and the 2010 sequel Sex and the City 2.

For her work on the show, Field was nominated for five Emmy Awards, winning one, and was nominated for six Costume Designers Guild awards, with four wins.

She was also nominated for an Academy Award for best costume design for The Devil Wears Prada.

Field, who just turned 76, will be at Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City on February 28 as part of her role as Urban Couture ambassador.

She previously visited Perth in 2014 as part of Style and the City, an exhibition showcasing 24 costumes made famous in the television series.

The evening will include the emerging and graduate designer showcase, which celebrates the next generation of fashion talent in WA.

This year’s runway will feature ECU students Jane Ziemons, Erin Mulholland and Genevieve Isabel Page, Curtin University students Beth Mosely, Melanie Wozniak and Ancille Kashaba and Rina Qiunan Chen, Gabriella Testaferrata Olivier, Rejina Saka, So Young Shin, Georgina Greenlee and Claire Randall from South Metropolitan Tafe.

Field will return to the shopping centre on March 2 for a styling session.

The City of Joondalup’s annual Urban Couture aims to support the WA fashion industry by bringing designers, photographers, textile artists and creative business entrepreneurs into Perth’s northern suburbs.

Other program workshops will include table arrangement, floral fascinators, weaving, pattern making as well as the Opening Our Land, Our Hands, Our Minds and Our Eyes exhibition curated by Elle Campbell.
