Let’s be honest, Michael Costello has dressed almost every Black beauty from Beyonce to Tamar Braxton, but now the highly sought after designer is in some hot water because he allegedly called one of his Instagram commenters a “ni**er”.
Let’s take it back to the beginning. Up and coming fashion designer Maxine James took to IG to air her grievances with Costello and his team. Apparently, he purchased a dress from her but then he posted it on his on Instagram page with no credit to her.
When I received pymt from @mtcostello @michaelcostello a week ago I was lost for words… excited but a TAD confused … I called wubs like “wow my favorite designer just purchased a dress from me wow he wants a dress from little ol me?! Like this man makes dresses for freakin BEYONCE and he just bought a dress from me!” a week later This happens he literally bought my EXACT dress … Put it on HIS model took pictures in HIS showroom as if he designed this piece his self it’s so disheartening I couldn’t help but shed a tear… Him as a designer should know first hand how heart breaking it is for ppl to take something you worked so hard on …..It’s like why? Who does that? I mean we ALL get inspired from some where but it is completely unfair to take someone’s EXACT design and EXACT dress at that and claim it as your own…. @michaelcostello You are already a well known designer you design dresses for TOP celebrities… Why would you do something so low? I put so much into my brand … I eat sleep breath it… I paid for so many mistakes while making this design I went through so much to make it perfect …for it to fit perfectly… patterns..grading …cut… Production …photo shoots ALL OF THAT and you literally take my EXACT DRESS and claim it as your own … I tried to reach out to you and you block me ? Like seriously … It’s extremely disheartening I TRUELY did look up to you as a designer…you were one of my favorites….I hope this lasts you for a life time … because God will never continue to bless someone who does evil malicious things like this…. Period

LingeRIH: Rihanna In Talks To Launch Her Own Line Of Intimates
Rihanna is definitely one of the sexiest chicks in the game, so it’s not surprising that she is rumored to be launching a line of lingerie. According to WWD, the pop star, who has made her presence known in the fashion and beauty world with her namesake cosmetic and apparel collections has struck a deal with Tech Style for a line of intimates.
Rihanna reportedly inked a partnership with the Fashion Group, which is already home to successful brands like Fabletics, ShoeDazzle and Just Fab. TechStyle Fashion Group’s partnership with Rihanna wouldn’t be the company’s latest celebrity team-up, as Fabletics already scored a partnership with actress Kate Hudson and singer Demi Lovato, and ShoeDazzle (co-founded by Kim Kardashian, Brian Lee and Robert Shapiro) collaborated with actress-singer Keke Palmer.
The Rihanna-helmed lingerie line hasn’t received an official release date, but samples have already been produced, according to the report. In the meantime Rih is readying the release of her FENTYxPUMA collaboration.
Just last week she announced that she’ll be merging the two brands to launch a joint collection and debuted photos of models sporting the athleisure line in the middle of a desert.
The joint collection will be available for purchase on March 15.
