I TOLD @COSMOPOLITAN THE ONLY #NYFW COLLECTION I MADE A PRIORITY TO SEE IN PERSON WAS @PROJECTRUNWAY’S!
WHEN MY CARRIE DIARIES FASHION RADAR WENT BEZERK!
Eric Daman, the Gossip Girl style maestro, in the throes of shooting the new season of The Carrie Diaries, who also assisted costume designer Patricia Field on Sex and the City, told @Cosmopolitan’s Michelle Ruiz how he’s sexing up Carrie Bradshaw’s style in season two, and why he’s scouring the Fashion Week runways online— just like the rest of us!
MR: How is Carrie’s style going to evolve in season two?
ED: Well, Carrie spent the summer in NYC. With any 18-year-old girl, it’s going to have an effect on her fashion. It’s a big part of a girl’s identity. Having met Samantha, we’re going to see Carrie exploring a little more body con, be a bit sexier, less ‘Connecticut’ when she’s in school. (+more)
MR: Do you use NYFW to shop for Carrie?
ED: We’re filming episodes now and it’s fun, but the days are long and high stress. I know I can peruse NYFW online, but this season I was a guest judge on Project Runway and decided to see their collection in person— and I definitely saw things I’d use on the show. (+more)
MR: What at NYFW screamed The Carrie Diaries to you the loudest?
ED: Stacey Bendet has a great overall Carrie look at Alice + Olivia. The whole Rodarte collection feels very 80s hair band girl. I think we could definitely see some of that on Samantha. Dom Streater had clear plastic trench coats that Larissa could definitely rock! (+more)

I love you in this classic elegant look!
True fashionistas will see how the vision of The Carrie Diaries 80s fashion is deeply embedded in the cultural fabric of the 80s. To prepare my team for what was coming, I created this series to describe what I felt would be the most important aspects of 80’s fashion to include in The Carrie Diaries. Most people watching The Carrie Diaries were born in the 90s. And I think most people in the cast were born in the 90s too for that matter! So, I made sure to use a combination of modern and vintage images and fashions, and keep a high-low mix of street wear, runway, couture, and mass market. I focused on the trends I could see being viable options and sustainable over the duration of hopefully many continuous seasons.
There were so many fashion inspirations in the 80s. Some of them were geographic, some of them were cultural, some retro, some neo. It was a fabulous kaleidoscopic influx of global proportions in a way that had never happened before.
THEY COVETEUR’ED ME: The Coveteur Comes Backstage for a Close-Up Look in Carrie’s Closet (and Mine, too!)
I was fortunate enough to invite The Coveteur’s creative team to the set of The Carrie Diaries to capture the show’s wardrobe and see the inspiration behind Carrie’s (and the rest of the girls’) on-screen looks. To up the ante, I brought along a few wardrobe must-haves from my own closet at home for an up-close and personal tour of what’s going on behind the scenes of The Carrie Diaries, and to show you what’s waiting in the wings for me when I get dressed and ready to make it work!
