Advice needed

If I were to be approached by the likes of an arts magazine wishing to feature my work how does that apply to photos of costumes I have created for customers? Do I have to seek permission from my customer to have a photo I took of the costume I created featured in the article? Or do I hold the right to feature photos I have taken of their costume?

I don't see it as unreasonable to consider the feelings of your client before granting permission for photographs and that sort of thing.
Yes, OP has the rights to them legally, and they can use them regardless of how the client feels, but there's nothing wrong with making sure your clients either A) Know you'll be using the photos as part of the business agreement or B) Individually feel comfortable using the photos. It's good sense, and in my opinion, good manners for a businessperson to have.
Knowing one's rights as an artist is important, considering the feelings and reactions of your clients/fanbase is too.
