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)

Project Runway Sneak Peek with Guest Judge Eric Daman! I sit in as guest judge this week, the second episode in 12th season of Bravo’s die-hard reality series featuring from judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen. For the challenge, the contestants are tasked with creating designs inspired by more than $30 million worth of precious jewels. Usually the jewelry complements the fashion, but on the runway tonight it’s the other way around! I always say, “Don’t apologize— accessorize!”
