"The Dionysian" debuted as part of a multi-media fashion film installation on October 18th 2011 in renowned gallery Space 54 in the heart of Shoreditch in East London.
From the collective talents of director and visual artist Stephen Lally ( stephenlally.com ) and fashion stylist Helen McGuckin ( helenmcguckin.com ), the film premiered as a multi-media gallery event that fused the worlds of fashion, film and art installation.
In a postmodern conceit that favours Stephen's visual style and Helen's styling, "The Dionysian" is a narrative film to music that showcases the work of a host of new design talent in fashion, along with a powerful, original orchestral score and sound design.
“The Dionysian” celebrates the hedonistic glamour of the 1980s New Wave scene, but thrusts it straight into the 21st century. Showcasing the work of emerging designers such as Rachel Freire, Shao Yen Chen and Ioannis Dimitrousis, the film’s a dark and delicious tale of one girl’s seduction by a monstrous family of Neo Romantic fashionistas – all controlled from afar by a mysterious, omnipotent Vamp . . .
