Michael Costello says he picked out the fabric for the first garment that he ever designed, and a seamstress named Esperonza whipped it up for him in one day. He has been been designing and sketching ever since he was 4 years old. He has never had any formal training. He learned how to sew by hand from his mother and then on his industrial machine. He won the 2009 Project ASID Award, with Dorothy Willets, for a dress made from upholstery and wallpaper. When asked about past jobs, he says he has always been in fashion, although he has worked in a few restaurant kitchens too.

When he's designing, he likes listening to Amy Winehouse, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Melanie Fiona. Lauryn Hill, and Joss Stone. He says a really amazing, slimming jacket in black is a fashion must.

His favorite designers are Elie Saab, Tom Ford, Valentino, Donatella Versace, and Basil Soda.

this is not the end Micheal, i think you very talented and creative, use this as a stepping stone, the sky is the limit, believe in yourself and don't let anybody hold you down not even your parent
bobinhouston says:
I so understand where you are coming from Michael. My mother is not accepting of my being gay and was never proud of me and all my accomplishments because of that. Forget what your parents think. You are a remarkable designer and an even more remarkable person. believe in yourself, whatever and whoever you are ! I would be honored to be your partner and to tell your parents "Shame on you!"
mwheeler says:
I would love to see your collection. You are a true design star and hopefully soon your name will shine like we all know it should. Best of luck...
