Written and Photographed by Mark Tauriello



Once again, Sally Lapointe has created a successful and forward fashion collection. Inspired by the chemistry processes in dark rooms for film photography, Lapointe explored the relationships between photographic prints and fabric, liquid textures and colors reflective of the photography process. As the models strutted their way around the gallery space, video projections of liquid chemistry was projected onto the models. Dark room tanks filled with liquids lit up by red light bulbs took us back to her inspiration sources. Lapointe continued with her pseudo cyber goth aesthetics with a refined flare. Boxy shoulders, architectural detailing combined with elegant drapery played on the boundaries between hard and soft. It is refreshing to see a successful avant-garde designer hitting the ground running. Style icons such as Lady Gaga have been spotted sporting some of Lapointe's collection pieces.
