Gossip Girl‘s costume designer Eric Daman is starring in his own web reality series this summer on Cambio, brought to us by Swarovski. The first episode, which is live now, shows Eric going to Lucky magazine’s fashion closet and creating outfits based on the beautiful jewelry accessories.
“I think a lot of women have really amazing statement pieces that they don’t necessarily know how to build an outfit around or they’re a little nervous to wear them out all the time,” Eric told us. “Showing them the inside tips on how to do that was really exciting for me, and I think it will be really exciting for the viewers to see these beautiful Swarovski pieces come to life around an outfit.”
The series, which will consist of three episodes, will show Eric prepping to style a shoot, chatting with the curator at FIT, and even styling one of his friends. “She had a whole closet of things that she considered her basics,” Eric said. “It was really fun to show her how to accessorize. You can put things together in your closet and add amazing accessories to take them from day to night or give them that extra style and personality you want them to have.”
Eric ended up adding a layer of three necklaces to pair with her leopard print J Crew sweater. “She was like, ‘Oh this is exactly what I wanted to do but I never would have found how to do that,’” Eric said…which is exactly the mission of this web series! You’ll get a lot of fun styling ideas.
