Michael Costello is an American Couture Fashion Designer and the first American rom (Gypsy) fashion designer. He was on Season 8 of Project Runway and finished in fourth place. He returned to Project Runway for their All-Star season and was the first finalist and was able to show his collection at the 2010 Mercedez-Benz Fashion week. One of the interesting facts about Costello is that he never went to school to learn his craft, he is self-taught. Costello made his very first couture collection with lipstick productions of Los Angeles at age fourteen. This earned him reviews and listings in magazines such as Vogue (the most famous of them all) and Glue Magazine.

On Sunday, January 26, 2014 music’s biggest night took place. The 56th annual Grammy Award Ceremony is the highlight of the New Year with all of the well-known stars and the extravagant red carpet fashions. The show consisted of extremely talented performers like Robin Thicke, Katy Perry, Lorde, Hunter Hayes, Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Pink, and more. But who could forget about the opening performance, who other than the queen herself, Beyoncé. However, the red carpet is what had all of my attention.

The Modernized Winged Eye

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013 in designer, Make Up, Trend, Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Modernized Winged Eye

              Your Eyes Have Wings! I’ve been seeing this trend e v e r y w h e r e! It’s a bit over-the-top for the average wowan, however it’s perfect for the night on the town. This is the basic winged liner with a twist. The picture below shows a winged liner that is extended with space directly under the pupils. Now this look can be a tad too dramatic but I’m sure if you master the look you can pull it off. It was inspired by Edie Sedgwick signature eye look. This is probably my favorite. It’s a double winged liner and it helps to open your eyes and make them appear closer together. I will def. be trying this...

An Independent Designer’s Struggles

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013 in designer, Uncategorized | Comments Off on An Independent Designer’s Struggles

Independent Designers have many struggles when they first start designing.  Contrary to popular belief designing isn’t always a glamorous business.  There are many ways that designers struggle but I believe they have 3 main struggles that are crucial to the success of their company.   Finances Many designers just starting will finance their company on their own.  This is not smart because if the company doesn’t do well, then the designer’s estate will be at risk.  The smarter way to handle this is to get investors to invest money in the company.  This is safer because if the company fails the designer is not losing everything they own.     Supplies Supplies are a struggle for designers for many reasons.  For a financial reason, supplies can be expensive and costly.  Sewing machines are necessary but also extremely costly.  Unless a...
