Renowned New York fashion designer Victor Costa to talk as part of Jeannene Booher Fashion Lecture Series

February 14, 2018 | Tags: School of Design, Fashion

The Stephens College School of Design has invited famed New York fashion designer Victor Costa to present a free public lecture on March 5 as part of The Jeannene Booher Fashion Lecture Series. Costa is known as the “king of the copycats” and has been called the “maestro copier” by Vogue magazine. As post-World War II American fashion hungered for Parisian style, Costa’s photographic memory and passionate love of fashion allowed him to translate what he saw on the European runway into affordable pieces for the U.S. market. His “copycat” ability made Costa into a multi-million-dollar business.
