Fans of the Tumblr blog Textbook, take note: Fashionista has teamed up with the blog’s mastermind, John Jannuzzi, to create storyboards for our industry’s style stars. (See an archive of his work for us here.)

You're surely familiar with the work of Costello Tagliapietra: beautifully draped dresses; playful prints with an eco-friendly edge. (PS, their latest collaboration with Uniqlo drops today!) The label is the brainchild of partners Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra. The pair are easily recognizable around town--rarely seen out of plaid or without their suspenders. Their designs remain a bit under the radar but rest assured, these two will be making big moves in the coming years. I personally thinks somebody in a big house that is white should pay some attention. But that's another post for another day. Aside from their clear talent, these two are just all around stand-up human beings.
