“When I first started working on movies in the ’80s, I thought, ‘ohmygod, isn’t this fabulous, they pay you to dress a few people?,'” legendary fashion stylist Patricia Field tells the News’ Raakhee Mirchandani. “When you enjoy something, you do it well. So when I started to feel this vibe, like I’m not having fun here anymore, I’m just working too hard, I knew I had to do something else. Life isn’t forever, ya know?”

‘SEX AND THE CITY’ COSTUME DESIGNER PATRICIA FIELD CLOSING STORE

Field, 73, has certainly dressed a few people — Sarah Jessica Parker in “Sex and the City”, Meryl Streep in “Devil Wears Prada”, Patti Smith, Missy Elliott, and thousands of scencesters and club kids since the disco days of the ‘60s – and is shuttering her eponymous boutique on the Bowery this Sunday. But the fashion icon, who has been an NYC shopkeeper since she was 24-years-old, says she’s ready for the next chapter which she hopes will include a vacation, making a movie with her pal in Athens, season 3 of “Younger” and curating a wearable art exhibit at Howl! Happening gallery at the end of March.

“I’m not sad. The only thing that I’m going to miss is what I call the ‘truth of retail’, the customers that come in, tell you their life story, talk to you. It’s the personal relationships that I have with my customers which is unusual today. But I’m not going to miss anything else,” she tells us.
