Marblehead native Sally LaPointe had another successful New York Fashion Week show over the weekend. During the event, held at Dia Art Foundation, she spoke to Pret-a-Reporter about models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who’ve been wearing her designs and giving her brand a higher profile. “I get so excited — I see them wear it and it’s perfect,” she said, adding, of the effect on sales, “We have people calling the studio, calling the store, people e-mailing trying to get these pieces so certainly the exposure is huge.”
Another local designer in the NYFW mix was Michael DePaulo, who hosted his show at Agora Gallery on Sunday. Guests at his event included singer Meredith O’Connor and celeb hair stylist Christo.
Other familiar faces at weekend fashion shows included Cohasset’s Kate Bosworth, who had a prime seat for Joseph Altuzarra, and Rhode Islander and former Boston University student Olivia Culpo, who supported designer Jonathan Simkhai.
