Michael Costello, designer and former Project Runway contestant, took to Instagram to call out his celebrity clients for not helping to promote his face mask initiative. Like fellow designer Christian Siriano, Costello has been making masks for emergency and healthcare workers during the pandemic.
He recently opened up sales of the masks to the public, with all proceeds from sales going towards manufacturing and matching sales in donations of masks to hospitals. Both black and white masks quickly sold out. It looks like he turned to his celebrity friends and clients for help and was ignored by many.
Costello has dressed such celebrities as Beyoncé, Céline Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Cardi B, Kylie Jenner, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande.
