President Victor Costa, Inc. – Dallas, Texas

Victor Costa, widely recognized fashion designer, is the son of a Sicilian immigrant. Mr. Costa grew up in Houston with an interest in fashion. Before he was ten, he designed paper-doll outfits which he sold to his friends at school. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. While residing in New York he sold sketches to leading designers and worked for bridal companies. From 1965-73 he worked for the firm Suzy Perette. He then returned to Texas and bought into a Dallas dress business. Within a year he bought out the firm and changed its name to his own. Mr. Costa has been the recipient of three Tommy Awards given annually by the American Printed Fabrics Council. In 1987 he received the Dallas Apparel Mart’s Fashion Award in the designer dress category. He is a popular participant in charity fashion events as an emcee and commentator. “Much of a businessman’s life sometimes requires him to swallow the bitter, but he keeps striving for the sweet.”
