Patricia Field Hosts Charlie’s 18th Birthday Rescue Fashion Show Event

It happened. I had a crazy idea for Charlie’s 18th birthday and children’s book, Charlie at the Pom Springs Hotel, and somehow pulled it off. Of course it helped that ‘Sex and the City’ Stylist Patricia Field, wrote the forward for the book and has a general policy of “you plan it, I’ll do the fashion.”

With that I wanted to create a Rescue Dogs fashion show, dressed in one of a kind ‘Kiss the Dogs NYC for Patricia Field ArtFashion’ dog clothes, to raise awareness for senior rescues.

Designed by James Suozzi, “Kiss the Dogs NYC” was originally created in 2013 for Patricia Field’s former Bowery Street Boutique. Suozzi also creates bespoke pieces and has been a part of Charlie’s life since his adoption, creating special pieces for him, most notably when Charlie walked me down the aisle in 2022.

I worked with Patricia Field and the Patricia Field ArtFashion team to dress adoptable rescues from Animal HavenGatto Pups & Friendsand PupStarz Rescue. and tell their stories. Additionally, Charlie opened and closed the show in a custom tutu (for his full ‘Charlie Bradshaw’ moment). The event was hosted at Flying Solo at 419 Broome St, which features independent fashion designers from around the world.
