FASHION designer Michael Costello- behind outfits for international pop stars Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez- will be kitting out Spain’s Eurovision Song Contest representatives, Nebulossa, next month.

The dance electro pop duo from Ondara, Alicante province will be performing Zorra in the Eurovision Grand Final in Malmo, Sweden on May 11.

The husband-wife team of Mark Dasousa and Maria Bas will wear clothes designed by Costello, who recently showed off his creations at the Malaga Festival.

Michael Costello said; “What I’ve created is daring, sophisticated and sexy with the design meant to convey a sense of trust and security.”

The catchy Spanish entry created some controversy as it tries to reclaim the once sexist slang word Zorra, which means ‘bi–h’ or ‘slut’ in Spanish slang.

Costello commented: “I’ve been inspired by the sensuality and confidence that the song evokes and I wanted to reflect the journey of self-empowerment that Maria portrays with Zorra, where she finally decides to embrace her true self, regardless of society’s expectations or judgments.”

“I wanted the designs to reflect this journey, from initial vulnerability to ultimate liberation and self-acceptance,” he added.

The American designer also revealed that it had been a dream of his to ‘contribute in some way’ to the Eurovision Song Contest which celebrates ‘diversity and creativity’.

On Tuesday, Benidorm’s mayor Toni Perez, welcomed Nebulossa in one of their last stops before heading off to Malmo.

“I am convinced of their success,” said Perez, ‘not just for their professional career but because they had the winning song in Benidorm Fest which fills us with pride.”

Nebulossa said they had been getting a good reaction while performing the entry around Europe, starting last weekend in Amsterdam and Stockholm, where hundreds of people chanted the words of Zorra.

‘It’s something very big that is happening to us’, acknowledged Maria Bas.

“It was clear in Spain, that there was a multitude of people who supported us and followed us and now we have found that the same thing has continued in Europe.”

“The song is perfectly understood and the message has reached people because they feel it relates to them, so we can’t ask for more,” added Bas.
