Field was born in 1941 in New York City to Greek and Armenian parents, who emigrated from Lesvos, Greece. She was raised in Astoria, Queens and has claimed credit for inventing the modern legging for women's fashion in the 1970s. She is the owner of the eponymous boutique Patricia Field.
She is a designer for series Sexa and teh city, and the Sex and the city movies, Ugly Betty, Faith and Hope, and Devil wears Prada movie.
On 25 February 2011, Dior announced that it had suspended its head designer John Galliano following his arrest over an alleged anti-semitic assault in a Paris bar. The next day, The Sun published a video on their website, in which Galliano hurls anti-semitic insults at a group of Italian women and declares "I love Hitler.. People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers would all be fucking gassed." In a statement, Natalie Portman, an Oscar-winning American actress who is Jewish and whose great-grandparents died in Auschwitz expressed "disgust" at John Galliano's comments. This sentiment was shared by most people in the fashion and entertainment industry, but not by Field, who went all out defending Galliano by sending an email blast to 500 friends, blogs and media. She dismissed Galliano's statements as "theater" and later, in a phone interview with WWD described Galliano’s videotaped behavior as “farce” and said she was bewildered that people in the fashion community have not recognized it as such. "It's theater," she said. "It's farce. But people in fashion don't recognize the farce in it. All of a sudden they don’t know him. But it’s OK when it’s Mel Brooks' The Producers singing "Springtime for Hitler".
