Recently, I was thrilled to receive an invitation to the Michael Costello SS17 runway show during NYFW. Michael Costello is known for his stunning gowns and this collection emphasizes that trademark even further. The collection is meant to represent a midnight garden party with vibrant, luxurious gowns and a mix of beads, floral patterns, and metallics. I loved the mix of colors that included a deep purple, a vibrant fuchsia, bold red, along with a hint of black and forest green. Tyson Beckford’s classy appearance on the runway also impressed me, giving the audience a sneak peek to Costello’s upcoming menswear line.
I loved the entire collection, but I definitely had my standout favorites. They included a long-sleeve purple gown with shoulder cutouts and high slits; a strapless fuchsia floral mermaid gown; a fuchsia floral halter gown; a red off-the-shoulder gown with high slits; and a red lace halter gown with high slits. The models walking down the runway looked so confident and captivating wearing these gorgeous pieces. I also couldn’t get over how cute the children included in the show looked! I got the sense that when you wear a Michael Costello outfit, you feel invincible. What a thrilling collection!
