“Swarovski partnered with televisions’s costume designer Eric Daman for an online mini-series called “The Daman Chronicles” on cambio.com. The series follows Daman in his daily fashion adventures: spending the day with a magazine stylist, a fashion blogger, and a fashion museum director as viewers get a glimpse into the life of an Emmy winning costume designer.”

With an assistant stylist Lauren Edelstein I take a fresh look at accessories and style three outfits around totally different jewelry looks at Lucky Magazine! My friend and vintage dress lover Alexis Bryan Morgan is the Executive Fashion Director of Lucky magazine! We collaborate…
In episode 2 of The Daman Chronicles, I’m joined by dyed-in-the-wool, true-blue fashion blogger Keiko Lynn. With basics from Keiko’s wardrobe and Swarovski’s Fall Collection, we co-create five signature looks for the fashionista’s blogging inspiration (Natural, Dramatic, Classic, Romantic and Eclectic) based on my book, “You Know You Want It.”
In episode 3 of The Daman Chronicles, I sit down with Valerie Steele, a fashion historian, is Director and Chief Curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. We dish on how trends evolve and feel even more modern this time around! The way styles of the 80′s reappear feeling refined. We also discuss some of my personal design inspiration.
We had fun with our friends on Twitter and Instagram in launching the series, Swarovski and Cambio hosted social media contests to celebrate each episode.
On premiere night, I cohosted a LIVE fashion event with Miami fashion blogger Ria Michelle, at the Swarovski Tabacco Road location. Dressing as their favorite Gossip Girl characters and sharing via Instagram or Twitter offered the chance to win Swarovski’s gorgeous bling-bling prizes and Seasons 1-4 of Gossip Girl on DVD. For our online friends we streamed the glamour live on Livestream!
