Seoul (The Korea Herald/ANN) -

Famous fashion stylist Patricia Field, who served as a costume designer for "Sex and the City" and "The Devil Wears Prada," hosted a Korean fashion event last Thursday in New York.

The celebrated stylist attracted more than 200 people in the fashion industry to the event titled "K-fashion Sensation" held at Dream Hotel, a modern luxury hotel in Manhattan, and introduced Korean fashion brands by having models wear clothes designed by Korean brands such as Buckaroo and Morine Comte Marant.

The event drew buyers from major U.S. department stores including Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Bergdorf Goodman and fashion reporters from Fox TV, NBC, Elle and Vogue.

The event was organized by the Korea Fashion Association, which asked Field to take charge of the event, from selecting local brands and clothes that would be worn by models in the planning stage to hosting the event to utilize her influence in the fashion industry in New York.

Field chose two out of several local Korean brands and chose clothes that would work well with New Yorkers. She also asked 50 famous people in New York's fashion industry to wear clothes of her choice to the event.
