NEW YORK, NY -- Every year at New York Fashion Week, designers flock to the runways to show off their trendy threads for the season. But some spectators aren't too excited about what former Sex and The City stylist, Patricia Field, presented at NYFW.

One of her models wore a jacket featuring paintings by artist Suzan Pitt. She's well known in the industry for her vibrant and psycho-sexual concept pieces. But what captured the eye of up-and-coming rapper Young Paris is far racier than that.

He took to his social media to point out how the jacket features blackface. Once people caught on, things went viral.

Patricia responded to several tweets calling her out on the colorful piece.

Well, instead of letting her fashion statement speak for itself, two days later Young Paris posted on Instagram that he'd talked with Patricia before she decided to pull the jacket from her site. Fashion or not, black face is something that will never be back in style.
