A FINE ROMANCE

Costello Tagliapietra, the duo says, is for “every woman, there isn’t one specific type in mind.” Loose, fluid, and forgiving, the dresses gently skim the curves of any body type for every occasion. (Romantic nights out top our list, however.) Particularly memorable are the vivid, saturated hues, a result of the digital technology they use. “It really comes from the AirDye process,” Costello says. “We really play with the back colors as much as the front colors. That really pops the color a lot.”

AirDye uses 90 percent less water and 85 percent less energy than conventional dyeing methods.

AirDye uses 90 percent less water and 85 percent less energy than conventional dyeing methods, two characteristics that will factor increasingly in a thirsty, post-peak-oil world. “”We have to dye fabrics, so we chose to do it this way,” Tagliapietra says. “It is saving water and it is saving energy. It is really a no-brainer for us.”
