Costello Tagilapietra

Known as "the jersey boys" the team of Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra is actually two men from Brooklyn who make slim and elegant draped jersey knit gowns. Their look is simple –generally unembellished evening dresses with a natural, modern flow. However, the standout was a burgundy short sleeved cocktail dress with the New York look of the moment, a gold beaded "collar". I saw this touch at several shows. No accessories are needed when the jewelry comes attached. Among the fans in the audience were Jessica Joffe, this season's face of Banana Republic and writer at Glamour.
