'Carrie Diaries' costume designer Eric Daman on re-styling Carrie Bradshaw

Posted on


Carrie Bradshaw may be back on TV, but don’t expect to see her running around in Manolos anytime soon.

“Everyone’s going to be watching and hoping she’s in Manolos in high school, but I think they’re going to be pleasantly surprised that she’s in Keds and it makes sense [because] they’re leopard Keds,” says Eric Daman, costume designer for The Carrie Diaries, the 80s prequel to Sex and the City that premièred last night.

“[I looked at] how [SATC’s Carrie] would mix things up and play around with style and push the envelope a little bit,” says Daman, who worked on SATC under legendary costume designer Patricia Field and later helmed the costume department for Gossip Girl. “I wanted to keep that kind of linear with the younger Carrie, but of course making it more teen appropriate.”

Read on to get the scoop on Carrie’s most notable looks from last night’s episode.
