Backstage MBFWA @ Aurelio Costarella

Style Voyeur was lucky enough to go behind the scenes of Aurelio Costarella’s latest MBFWA show thanks to my second Guest Blogger – one half of PR and Production company, Muse Bureau and personal friend of the designer – Grant Capriotti.

Aurelio Costarella is a WA based, top Australian Fashion Designer who’s work has helped take the Australian fashion industry to the International marketplace. Costarella’s contribution to fashion in Australia and WA is remarkable and has been so since the label’s inception in the year 2000. His creations are so beautiful that he has built a strong celebrity clientele including the likes of Rhianna, Dita Von Teese, Naya Rivera, Melissa George and Dannii Minogue amongst others. Take this insider look at the show with Grant Capriotti, from the fittings to the runway and everything else in between.

Aurelio Costarella said, “The influences for this Spring Summer collection have been varied. A painting by Flemish artist Joos Van Cleve (1485 – 1540) The Suicide of Lucretia (1520-25). In all its renaissance brilliance, it is fragile, compelling and somewhat macabre”.

The colour palette was inspired by 1920’s oriental art – wasabi, ecru, chartreuse, woodrose and steel. Aurelio has combined hand dyed raffia, silk covered crystals and mirrored sequin together to create a rich and playful surface across intricate gowns, skirts and jackets.
