I told New Zealand’s @coupdemain Magazine “Working on ‘Sex And The City’ was like earning a PHD in costume design…”
“Patricia Field pushed the boundaries of style on television with a certain level of embellishment that brought to life a portrayal of character that can only happen through clothing, while Sarah Jessica Parker was a stickler for proper fit, without which a petite actor can be easily gobbled up by her garments.”

Carrie has a lot of changes in each episode—averaging about 10! I usually break down the script and categorize by type of change, e.g., “Journaling look,” “Interview Office look,” or “School look.” Each is very different and has different needs.
It all started with ‘Sex and the City’ … Maybe it was when Carrie wore her infamous tutu while prancing down the streets of New York that we really started noticing that show’s fashions. But, for whatever reason, we never stopped. Costume designer Patricia Field, who likely lived in relative anonymity, became a household name and television fashion was never the same. Can I get an amen?!
Though ‘Sex and the City’ is long gone, our obsession with TV fashion has remained. We seem to care as much about the clothing worn by our favourite television characters as we do about character development and plot-lines.
So forget about the runways, let’s take a look at some of the most stylish television [characters] to hit the airwaves… (+more)

But instead of words there are sequins, sparkle and lots of prints.

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!
