Several years ago, I used to always tune in to project runway watching up and coming designers going at it with each other for the overall grand prize on the show. Some of the designers on the show are well established within their hometowns, but they’re not known on a national scale. It’s no surprise that some of them move on to bigger and better projects after the show and even gain more popularity along the way.
Michael Costello appeared on Season 8 on project runway and has become a hometown hero in Palm Springs ever since. This is the place where he opened his first boutique and showroom at just the age of 15! This talented designer who is now 31 has dressed some of the most world-renowned celebrities with his unique designs. He recently showcased his latest designs at El Paseo for the Superstars of Project Runway fashion show on March 19, 2014. And several weeks before that, he featured his collection during New York Fashion Week that started on Feb. 8.
I began noticing Michael when I saw the beautiful dress he designed for Beyoncé during the Grammys and from a couple of celebrities ,I follow on Instagram, that graciously wear his over the top sexy dresses.
He is very talented, and has been working hard at perfecting his craft several years now. Oftentimes, celebrity have so many options with high-end designers for their looks; but Michael Costello somehow is able to draw these clientele while making a name for himself along the way. He is on the right path, and is definitely destined for greatness, not just in the US, but all over the world.
