Happy Clothes is a candid, fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the creative process, extraordinary life and career of costume designer Patricia Field, whose unique vision has impacted fashion and popular culture for nearly six decades. When she opened her clothing store in 1960s New York City, the odds were stacked against her. But even as a gay, female first-generation American, she proved herself as a savvy businesswoman and creative genius, and her eponymous store quickly became a must-see destination for travelers from around the world for 50 years.
As a two-time Emmy-winning costume designer, Field is best known for her work on Sex and the City. Her resume boasts some 30 other television shows, including Emily in Paris and Run the World, which are featured in this documentary. Field has costumed over a dozen films, most notably The Devil Wears Prada, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.
