A couple of seasons ago, we were lucky enough to attend a fashion show in the home of Patricia Field, with a DJ in the kitchen and a runway that went throughout her stunning two-story place on the Bowery. So one can only imagine what kind of party the Sex and the City designer is capable of throwing in an actual venue. Valentine’s Day Costume Ball by Patricia Field gives us the chance to find out. This V-Day party and Fashion Week kick-off celebration, co-hosted by fashion publicist and reality-TV star Kelly Cutrone and downtown party icon Susanne Bartsch, boasts a fabulous costume contest (including categories for Sexiest Single and Sexiest Couple) and the chance to win a $4,000 shopping spree. And, before you think the admission fee is kind of steep, we should mention that there’s an open bar all night.
