NEW YORK, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- A New York woman said she received a dream gift from her husband: a "Sex and the City"-type closet created by the movie's set designer.

A unnamed retired Long Island businessman hired Lydia Marks and her business partner, Lisa Frantz, to convert a 400-square-foot guest bedroom into a luxurious closet, the New York Post reported Sunday.

The closet holds racks of clothing organized by label, drawers for sunglasses and other accessories, dozens of purses and more than 400 pairs of designer shoes, the Post reported.

"They add a bit of glitz into the glossy white closet, while maintaining the charm of a Park Avenue penthouse," said Marks, referring to the hand-beveled mirrored glass strips that adorn the closets of both the Long Island couple and Carrie Bradshaw, the TV show's character played by Sarah Jessica Parker.

"The shoe cabinet is very similar to Carrie's, although our client's is much bigger," said Marks.

The two business partners measured and inventoried the client's entire wardrobe to create a particular space for each item, the Post said.

The closet cost $175,000 to build, the Post said.
