Anna Sui has lived on the same West Village street since 1999

“New York has changed so much,” says Anna Sui, who arrived here from the suburbs of Detroit in the ‘70s and has lived on 12th Street since 1999. The legendary fashion designer will show a new collection during New York Fashion Week on Monday. It will be her 29th year sending designs down the runway. Can’t make the show? Decades of her iconic looks are on view at the Museum of Arts and Design in Columbus Circle through Feb. 23. Sui tells The Post about her favorite NYC haunts.

A few of my nieces and nephews have recently moved to New York, and one of our favorite places to go for brunch is Daily Provisions. Their egg sandwiches are dreamy. We’ll order the everything croissant with cream cheese and split it. It’s so decadent. But it’s also really hard to get a seat there — it’s so small — so sometimes we’ll head to Frenchette instead. I love the roast chicken. It’s so moist and feels like home.

I recently renovated my apartment and now I have a dining room for the first time ever, so I’ve been entertaining at home. I’ll have dinner parties or have people over for afternoon tea. I don’t have time to cook, though. For dinner parties, my go-to is ordering from RedFarm. They have incredible dumplings — the shrimp and snow pea leaf are real crowd-pleasers. For Sunday afternoon tea, I’ll order from this cute place on West 12th and Sixth Avenue called O Cafe. I’ll buy sandwiches and matcha cake and chop it up into little finger foods and serve it with tea. It’s great to catch up with your friends when everyone has such busy schedules in the city.

One thing I’ll really miss doing on weekends is going to the Chelsea Flea Market. I used to be consumed with it. Its closing is one of those New York tragedies. I used to spend hours there walking around discovering new things — or old things. I recently discovered an adorable boutique called Bode. It really showcases the designer’s personality. I love it when the designers transport you into their world. I feel that way about John Derian. It gives you the possibility of dreaming and imagining these beautiful objects in your home. I walk in there and wonder what I’m going to buy this time.

I’m a shopaholic, so I spend a lot of my time on weekends rearranging my closets. Space is at a premium in New York, and switching out my closets is an obsession of mine. Sometimes when people call me, I tell them: “Sorry, I’m working on my closet.”
