“Project Runway” alum Michael Costello embraced a slew of fall trends in his glamorous MT Costello collection: rich burgundy and red shades, velvet, perforated leather and transparency. He wisely used these motifs separately, and to good effect. Standouts included a long-sleeve stretch satin burgundy gown, a nude perforated leather halter dress and several black sequin and mesh geometric numbers.
For his made-to-order line, called Michael Costello, the designer worked a fire-and-ice theme. There were ultrafitted white gowns, some done in lace and others in intricate beading, that managed to be both sexy and sweet (think Beyoncé’s Grammy dress, which Costello designed). Then there were bright red numbers that either floated over the body in yards of chiffon or were molded into hourglass shapes with expertly draped fabrics.
