Aussie reader Carolyn introduced me to Aurelio during New York Fashion week. I had the honor of interviewing him backstage. Although only known to the truly savvy socialites and fashionistas now, he will be taking the scene by storm very soon. Mark my words.
My beautiful Aurelio who saved me from many a fashion disaster including today. Take a look at his Spring collection here.
Hailing from down under, Aurelio Costarella brought out a variety of starlets like Dawn Richard from Danity Kane to giggly coed girls excited to get their first peak of a rising designer.
Costarella show began with an ethereal vibe as the electronica music thumped and the first gown floated down the runway. The opening look—a satin purple sweetheart gown belted with exposed seams—echoed the dreamy ambience and set the tone for the creations that followed.
Costarella seemed to have gotten his inspiration from flowers and Latin culture as a black dahlia blouse with a thin cigarette pant proved to be reminiscent of a Spanish matador. A dove draped a-symmetrical colorful dress had a tango twist with a billowing skirt.
