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)

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.
