During New York Fashion Week, there were a few shows that I was particularly excited for. The Michael Costello Runway Show was on the top of the list! I nearly cried when I got the invite to see him at Moynihan Station on Thursday, September 8th.
As a self-taught designer, he went on to become a finalist in two separate seasons of Project Runway. I have watched him dress A-list celebrities such as Beyoncé and the Kardashians. His clothes are meant to make women feel beautiful, which you can clearly see below.
At the show, I sat directly behind a few cast members of the popular E! reality show WAGS. A number of other reality stars were in the crowd such as Summer Rae, Paris Hilton, and Dorothy Wang from Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.
I loved the deep purple hue that Michael Costello used through the line even adding it into the makeup of the models. The biggest surprise was seeing Tyson Beckford strut down the runway in an iridescent suite. The crowd started cheering at the first sight of Tyson hitting the runway.
While it was hard to shoot the actual show, you can see the full Spring Summer 2017 collection here. I listed a few of my favorite looks. With the help of Ty “MrVocabTV” Hill, here are some shots of Michael Costello and guest backstage.
