Katie Gallagher Fall/Winter 2011

KATIE GALLAGHER

Katie Gallagher is hands down one of my favorite up-and-coming New York designers, and one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met. Every single season, she comes up with amazing visual themes and concepts that she expertly translates into her clothing. Which she designs, cuts, and sews out of her apartment.

One of my biggest fall 2011 regrets is that I got so sick (thanks to running around in 20 degree weather all week!) that I missed her show. Luckily, my amazing assistant photographer Maureen was able to step in help cover the presentation, at Milk Studios.

Katie’s Fall collection was entitled “Gris-Gris”, and inspired by Vodoo culture. (Learn more about A Gris-gris, a sort of magical talisman here.)

Backstage, MAC Cosmetics make up artis Javier Romero took the vodoo them to the next level, creating a look that turned the models into makeshift vodoo dolls.

To get the look: A small section of cotton mesh was glued around the eyes.

Next, using fingers and brushes, MAC Eyeshadow in “Carbon” was applied from lashes to brow bone through the mesh layer.

Katie’s clothing is always impeccable tailored, and fall 2011 was no exception:

I say this every season, but no other designer I know of makes more interesting outerwear than Katie:

Another stand out this season: Katie’s use of volume, with the addition of flowing dresses.

If Katie Gallagher somehow hasn’t made it onto your radar yet, with her presence on nearly every “nyc designers to watch list”, she soon will.
