18. Patricia Field
Occupation: Costume Designer, Stylist, Fashion Designer
Patricia first opened up her signature boutique in 1966, which means this Queens girl has been serving up fashion for 46 years! Her boutique offers only the coolest most outrageous pieces, just take a stroll through her Bowery location. Her magnificent work for "Sex & The City" may have helped catapult "Carrie Bradshaw's" distinct character, but Patricia ultimately changed the way women at large thought about fashion. She pieced together well-rounded ensembles; high with low, and vintage with "around the way girl" punctuations which introduced non-urbanites to the name plate necklace and bamboo earrings.
