When First arriving to the Costello Tagliapietra's fashion show, (while I was covering the photography for FutureClaw Magazine.) I felt a strong excitement & anticipation from the guest in the room, I started noticing some familiar faces too - I exchanged a fast but delightful "hello you look amazing as always!" with model & host of Top Chef, Padma Lakshmi - replying with a humble response "Aw how sweet, thank you so much." also a quick "Hi I'm a huge fan!" to Angela Simmons of MTV's show Run's House, Replying back with enthusiasm "Thanks!" As the show started winding closer I began to set my camera in place and getting situated. A packed filled room of excited viewers and predominate fashionistas took there seats as the lights dimmed, the show starts. As I'm clicking away I notice thew my camera lens these dante and whimsical cocktail dress coming down the runway, the prints and vibrant colors instantly capture my attention. As the show goes on we see gorgeous and delicate gowns with mute pastel like colors making the gowns "less girlie" and more sophisticated. I started noticing that a lot of the garments were reminiscence of togas, like the infamous trademark wrap dresses they are know for. A refreshing autumn like color pallet of burnt orange, ochre, and slate blues was a recurring theme threw out the show. This whole collection is completely wearable from the cocktail dresses to evening gowns! Perfection! Who would think two rugged looking men like Robert Tagliapietra and Jeffrey Castello would crate such a delicate collection. LOVE!
