AURELIO COSTARELLA MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK SS15’16 SYDNEY AUSTRALIA
Aurelio Costarella is earning a formidable reputation internationally as he turns his Western Australian based company into an international luxury brand. Driven by the design process, each thematic collection is an exploration that moves seamlessly from one season to the next. A focus on textile development, detailed cutting and quality craftsmanship sets Aurelio Costarella apart. His exquisite eveningwear designs have been admired and worn by a plethora of international stars including Rihanna, Dita Von Teese, Dannii Minogue and Nicole Scherzinger. In 2013 Aurelio Costarella celebrated 30 years working in the fashion industry, culminating in a retrospective exhibition at the WA Museum. Aurelio Costarella Summer 14/15 is a contemporary interpretation of classic 1920’s/30’s Parisienne silhouettes. Inspired by the work of Man Ray and the eclectic style of his muses Kiki de Montparnasse, Tamara de Lempika, Nancy Cunard, Lee Miller and Juliete. This vibrant and multi-textured collection of dresses, suiting and gowns takes on a journey from delicately pretty to decadently noir.
