Aurelio Costarella the creative behind Aurello Costarella (ready-to-wear) and Aurello Costarella Couture, launched in 2000, is earning a formidable reputation internationally as he turns his Western Australian based company into an international luxury brand.
He created history in 2007 when he listed Costarella Design Limited on the Australian Stock Exchange (code CLD) an Australian first for an individual Australian fashion designer.

The Aurelio Costarella labels are available throughout Australia and internationally with stockists in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Italy, Kuwait, Riyadh, Jakarta and New Zealand.
The label is best known for enthusiasm for design, strong aesthetics, and exquisite fabrics.
Some of the attributes associated with the designer include attention to detail and use of exclusive fabrics to create modern, yet timeless pieces for the modern woman with styles that outlast a single season.
