Costume Dept a new clothing line by Shaun Samson and Shawn Kelaka, takes its inspiration from the emerging art scene, popular culture, and the night life sub-culture. It is an eclectic collection of underground fashion pieces that are off-beat and seriously buzzworthy. With just the right mixture of uptown and downtown, and a generous dash of street chic, Costume Department is becoming a fashion industry breakout. Here are a few favorites from Costume Department.
The ruched dress with hood in black could be a main go-to piece in your fall wardrobe. It has long sleeves, and a slim, but not clingy fit, and a hood. Hits right about knee length and would look amazing with brightly colored suede boots.
The ruched strapless jumpsuit in black is ultra sexy, and the ruched legs keep you from feeling like you’re wearing a catsuit. With wicked high heels and a bold necklace, you will attract attention!
Leggings are big this fall, and if you want something beyond basic black, try the black sequin leggings , made from a spandex blend with a holographic sequin pattern. They will dress up a micro-mini or tunic beautifully.
If you only have the budget for one splurge-worthy fun item this fall, this fringe top in black could well be the one! With swingy, elbow-length sleeves, and generous fringe from just beneath the bust, you will look fabulous pairing it with distressed denim, leggings, or over a skinny pencil skirt. Prepare to set fashion trends.
