CW’s teen drama Gossip Girl, seen here Monday nights on WPIX, features the costumes designed by Eric Daman.
Daman, who has no formal fashion training, got discovered while working at a boutique after studying at the famed Sorbonne.
Through a connection he landed on HBO’s Sex and the City, eventually taking home an Emmy.
Now, he calls Gossip Girl home.
“I don’t want all the girls who watch [Gossip Girl] in the Midwest to feel bad because they’re watching something that they don’t think they can ever be a part of,” he said. “What we want to do is to show people that you don’t have to be a millionaire to look like a million bucks.”
