costello_tagliapietraF1006NEW YORK, Feb 14, 2010 / FW/ — Showing a very tight collection in a very narrow color palette of earth tones, Costello Tagliapietra once again demonstrated that less is more and good editing is the hallmark of experience designers.

Known for their masterful draping techniques and turning classic silhouettes into highly covetable garments, Costello Tagliapietra proposed mini sheath dresses, pencil skirts and draped pants, all of which will be great additions to a woman’s wardrobe.

And following the smashing success of their Spring / Summer 2010 collection, Roberto Tagliapietra and Jeffrey Costello continue in their environmentally friendly path as they once again used the patented process of AirDye.

A one-step process, AirDye skips the liquid phase of dyeing fabric altogether. Proprietary dyes are transferred from paper onto fabric using heat. In bypassing the liquid phase, no water is used and no pollutants are emitted, thus the process is waste-free.
