Michael Costello — Project Runway



Designer Michael Costello

Adrianne Bonafede

The last designer of the night was local favorite Michael Costello, who was greeted with loud cheers and whistles, as he thanked everyone associated with Fashion Week El Paseo™ via a video clip. He talked about the crazy lives he and others in his creative field lead — the drama and the design.

When his models took the runway in elegant, sophisticated, and sexy dresses, the audience went wild. His magnificent 20-piece collection showed how far he has grown as a designer.

“His ability to use the finest beading — imported from Dubai and India — and exquisite fabrics were the key to his array of red carpet and runway worthy gowns,” says Palm Springs Life Fashion Editor Susan Stein. “Michael has not strayed from his dream of creating sexy elegant gowns. He has given us the pleasure of watching him soar to the next level as a designer.”

In 2010, Costello was featured on Project Runway season eight, finishing in fourth place, and he was a Project Runway All-Star season one finalist. He also showed his collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2010.

Stein credits the young designer for developing the wildly popular Project Runway night of Fashion Week El Paseo™ over the past several years.
