we gear up (pardon the pun) for our annual High Tech issue of Launchpad, we decided to raise the bar this time around; and by "raise the bar" we mean photo shoot! In a LP first, we produced our own Portfolio-style shoot, snagging legendary editorial/runway stylist Jason Stanton to create the "cyber-punk"-inspired looks. Our fierce team also included Jason's wife and amazing makeup artist Heidi Stanton, photographer Teren Oddo and, of course, our phenomenal model Ali, who proved fearless in all things fashion and hair. It was truly a blast to finally see our weeks of prep come to life before our eyes, and I can't wait for you all to check out the incredible looks Jason and our team put together. All will be revealed in our upcoming August issue. Stay tuned!
