Welp… another day, another example of the power of social media! I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve been tagged online about this recent incident involving Beyoncè dress designer Michael Costello!
There’s a young woman online claiming that the “Project Runway” designer, who has designed gowns worn by Beyoncé, Tamar Braxton & more has used several racial slurs online and off.
Last October, online boutique owner Maxine James blasted Costello in an instagram post, stating that he’d purchased one of her custom designs then shared it with his followers as if it were his own creation.

Costello allegedly took the matter offline recently when he confronted the up & coming designer in person, referring to her in a derogatory manner yet again.
