“As a visual artist I can translate my creativity and carry it over to many other art forms. I can draw. I can paint. I can design furniture, landscapes, environments, interiors; design jewelry, shoes, handbags, and hats. I do my own styling for all my photo shoots as well as my fashion shows. So I can do it all. I’m also not a bad chef. And that’s the great joy of being a creative artist. When I come into my temple of beauty, it’s playtime.” –Fashion Designer and Renaissance Woman Sue Wong

At Pier 57 on February 8, 2013, in New York City, Sally LaPointe showcased her Fall 2013 collection. The diversity of the pieces were amazing. This dark, goth-inspired collection had a bit of an 80s feel to it. However, the references to other influences are endless: Matrix, futuristic styles, flared-hemmed tops, bare-backed silhouettes, and even startling feminine pieces. The color theme stayed safe with black, tan, white, rust, and splashes of red. Check out the Sally LaPointe Fall 2013 Runway, photographed by Arun Nevader.
