CONTEMPORARY LABELS WITH SIGNATURE VINTAGE ACCENTS
So far I’m best known for my work outfitting the Upper East Siders on Gossip Girl, and now of course, I’ve risen to the challenge of outfitting a young Carrie Bradshaw in the new CW series The Carrie Diaries. This isn’t my first encounter with the character of Carrie — I worked with Patricia Field on several seasons of the original Sex and the City! Popsugar invited me to visit their NYC studio to chat about what you can expect on The Carrie Diaries, including a mix of contemporary labels with vintage and some of Carrie’s trademark personalized accessories.
A STAR IS BORN
Look at the incredible detail built into this ballet dress by Georges Chakra! The decollete is sheer nude encrusted with green crystals and rhinestones! And it frames her Alex Woo “C” necklace amazingly. Carrie Bradshaw enjoys her first 15 minutes of fame in Interview Magazine, seeing her hand painted Mark Cross bag; it’s her first feature in Interview, her favorite magazine of all time. The jade earrings are also a jaw dropper, with their crystal teardrops dangling in the center!
Watch Carrie and her friends dance the night away in The Carrie Diaries “Caught” episode on The CW.

When the CW announced it was making The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to Sex and the City, it was a no-brainer that they called on 42-year-old Eric Daman to be the show’s costume designer. Ten years prior, working as…
As the costume designer of the new ‘Sex and the City’ prequel, I’m mixing high and low looks, fast fashion with vintage —and a healthy dose of haute couture, of course! Stay tuned for touches of TopShop and dashes of Dior (and Alice + Olivia, Marc by Marc, Collette Dinnigan, Mac Duggal Coutoure, M Missoni, Forever 21, Intermix, Coach, Comptoir de Cotonniers, H&M, Eva Franco, Mark Cross, and Zara, to name a only a few)!
“It’s so much fun to see the fearless choices Carrie makes,” Annasophia Robb recently gushed to Leah Faye Cooper of The New York Post. And added “What makes [Eric Daman] so good at his job is that you can’t tell what’s $800 and $20.”
I grew up in the ’80s, and I loved ’80s fashion. It was kind of a turning point for just being wild and free and expressing yourself! So for me it’s about identifying how we think of who we already know as Carrie Bradshaw versus who she could have been as a teenager in the ’80s and invent continuity between the two.
