About Costello Tagliapietra
Born in Bristol, Pennsylvania, Jeffrey Costello moved to New York during his teenage years and began his career in fashion, designing clothing for a variety of downtown actresses and musicians.  In 1994, he met partner, New York native and Parson's School of Design graduate, Robert Tagliapietra and together in 2004, they created Costello Tagliapietra.  Spring 2005 marked the premier of the Costello Tagliapietra collection on the New York runways.  The designers went on to win the 2005 Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award and presented their second well-received collection, of twenty-four looks, in which called "expertly executed".   Costello Tagliapietra were named finalists of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund both in 2005 and 2006 and in the summer of 2006 both designers were elected to the CFDA and in 2010 they were honored with the 2010 CFDA/Lexus Award.

Playing with the tension between fabric, drape and silhouette, the designers have created a unique vision that is both elegant and timeless and that borders on the couture in technique and process.  Both Robert and Jeffrey were taught at an early age by their grandmothers, in the finer points of tailoring (both of whom, coincidentally, worked for Norman Norell in the 1960's).  The designers learned as children, couture techniques in patternmaking and construction and through their years of creating custom wardrobes for private clients, have honed their skills at designing the perfect fitting garment.  

In 2012, Jeffrey and Robert introduced C&T Costello Tagliapietra.  The designers describe their secondary collection as "a love letter to all the women that have craved greater accessibility to our brand".  The C&T collection can now be purchased at all Barneys CO-OP locations across the country and at The Bay in Canada as well as other specialty boutiques around the world.
