From Grecian gowns with iced-out body chains, to show stopping jumpsuits with dramatic capes, if there is one thing Michael Costello knows how to do…it’s put on a show! Whether models are strutting down the runway or celebrities whisked across the red carpet you can usually spot someone wearing a Michael Costello design, because all eyes are on them.
I had the honor of attending Costello’s SS16 runway show during New York Fashion Week, and I still cannot stop raving about the collection! While watching his designs come down the runway I was imagining his pieces being photographed on the side of a villa in Greece overlooking the water, and another off the Amalfi Coast in Italy (it’s the creative director mindset in me). Each look in the collection made a statement or had an accessory, such as crown or body chain accenting the look. There was also a variety of colors, textures and prints (yellow & emerald green, floral prints, and mesh/iridescent) used as detailing in the gowns.
This collection was inspired by feminine decadence and used bold shapes with a softer and sweeter color palate. “It evokes the sexiness of a tight dress with the draping of an elegant gown” says Costello.
I know that these designs will be photographed on the red carpet very soon, as well as in some of my future editorial shoots! 😉
Take a look at a few of my favorite looks from the collection below! See more of Michael Costello’s designs at Michaelcostello.com!
