EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: ‘The Carrie Diaries’ Eric Daman Reveals His Secrets For Dressing The Most Stylish Stars In Hollywood!
Many have said the clothes were a fifth character on “Sex and the City.” The same holds true for “Gossip Girl” and “The Carrie Diaires.” And when iDesignTimes talked to Eric Daman this week we found out that fifth character is developed just as methodically as any script. But instead of words there are sequins, sparkle and lots of prints.
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.
