However, Designer Michael Costello has a few words for any bandwagon MC fans or opportunists. Since Cardi’s look hit the fashion scene more and more attention has come to MC. Regarding this he states,
“Funny how [agency] IMG chose to highlight my show right after they saw a major celeb like Cardi B wear my pieces. My show at NYFW was a huge success this season because of my own in-house team.
My show was shown on a billboard in Times Square yet there was not a single mention on IMG’s social platforms including the NYFW Instagram page. I was literally ghost to them.
My show show consistently draws the most number of digital impressions amongst all the designers under their roster; but I guess I was still not good enough for IMG’s models or the selective NYFW clique. People seem to forget that my success is not overnight and that I have built strong relationship with stylists and celebrities for the past 2 decades.
I’ve never PAID for a celebrity to sit in my show or walk in my show or wear me. Everything you’ve seen thus far is God’s plan! If you never supported me or my team in the beginning, don’t start claiming me now. My success belongs to my team… it is not yours to claim.”
