The label-loving wife said that it “was worth every penny, they made my dreams come true”.
Set designer Lydia Marks and her business partner, Lisa Frantz, transformed a 400 sq. ft. guest bedroom to look exactly like the well-known dream closet Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) received from her fiancée Mr. Big, played by Christ Noth, in the first Sex and the City film.
“The shoe cabinet is very similar to Carrie’s, although our client’s is much bigger” Marks told the New York Post. “It has storage for 400 designer shoes”.
Also, just like Bradshaw’s closet it features the same strips of hand-bevelled mirrored glass. “They add a bit of glitz into the glossy white wardrobe, while maintaining the charm of a Park Avenue penthouse”, Marks said.
Before the wardrobe was built, every item in the client’s closet was measured and inventoried to create individual space for it. Marks, who also designed sets for the Anne Hathaway film The Devil Wears Prada, said that “sunglasses have their own drawers with specially sized compartments and even the vanity was designed to accommodate specific hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons”.
The husband has announced that he is so happy with the result he will be getting a matching wardrobe built for himself.
