Michael Costello held his second runway presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with the debut of his Fall/Winter 2015 collection on February 17, 2015 in The Salon at Lincoln Center.
Inspired by clean lines and minimalist Japanese culture, the glitz and shimmers of Parisian lights and London layers, Michael Costello created a contemporary collection that appeals to women on and off the red carpet. While remaining true to his aesthetic, Costello incorporated hues of midnight blue, black, slate grays and metallics.

NARS Cosmetics created a makeup look that included a bold lip and brow providing the perfect contrast to collections darker hues. The hair styling, created by Cutler Salons, reflected the influence of Japanese minimalism with a towering mini bun standing tall on the head with a low pony tail in the back.
The collection was accessorized with luxury handbags from House of Borel, fastened from exotic skins, including anaconda, crocodile and ostrich, with accents of rose gold and palladium, adding a more opulent look to the Michael Costello collection. Paired with each outfit were custom laced, knee high, stiletto boots by Stella Hues, inspired by the romantic blues and riveting turquoise colors of The Virgin Islands’ warm waters while incorporating an urban influence to diversify the elegance of the collection.
