A DOSE OF DAMAN: Swarovski and Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman have teamed up on a three-episode web series, “The Daman Chronicles,” to debut on the entertainment platform Cambio.com on June 19. The series will offer a peek into Daman’s professional life, following him as he preps for a photoshoot, researches upcoming television seasons and meets with magazine editors in New York.
“Gossip Girl is coming to an end later this year and it has a huge following,” said Livia Marotta, director of communications for Swarovski CGB. “We wanted to bring this excitement and the personality of Eric Daman to our fans and the public.”
As for appearing in front of the camera, Daman’s not terribly concerned. “They’re all friends — I have a great relationship with Swarovski. Plus, I’m used to it; I was a theatre major in high school.” Swarovski will host a celebratory event for the first episode at its Lincoln Road store in Miami on June 19, as well as a social media contest urging participants to dress as their favorite Gossip Girl for various prizes, including a Rocket Necklace from their summer collection.
