Costarella backs WA model talent

The fashion veteran,whose 30 Year Retrospective exhibition at the WA Museum closes this weekend,will present a nature-inspired collection of embellished gowns alongside iconic designers Collette Dinnigan,Martin Grant and Akira Isogawa at the charity event,which raises money for the Water Strategy Project and is expected to draw a crowd of 1500 spectators to Melbourne"s Botanic Gardens. And showing Costarella is committed to shining the light on his home State,he flew over his own group of local Chadwick models to walk in the catwalk parade,including burgeoning beauties Ebony Hunter,Hannah Collard and Grady Wulff. They were also joined by Perth-raised success stories Emily Cattermole and Holly Caiulo,who are now based in Melbourne. Before flying out for tonight"s event,Costarella told Access All Areas the showcase was a wonderful coup for both him and the models. "It"s raising awareness of WA models in Victoria,and it"s a great experience for them because they don"t often get the opportunity to be flown across to Melbourne to do a show".
