Its a good thing my Facebook pen pals Jeffrey and Robert started the show late because I just made it in time for the start, taking my seat next to the very chic and fun Susan Joy. What I most liked about the Costello Tagliapietra show were all the rich textures of silks and ultraseudes which short of grabbed the models as they strutted past. They have to be seen in person to be believed. The leather accessories which were right out of William Friedkin's 1980 film Cruising felt right at home at the West Side Highway venue. Congrats guys!
