Long one of my favorite young fashion designers, Katie Gallagher is also one of the most creative minds in the NYC fashion world. Season after season, every single detail of her collections conspires to create not just a clothing collection, but an entire new conceptual “world” inspired by her current theme.
For Fall, the collection was inspired by synesthesia, “a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.”
Clothing wise, this translated to colorblocking, structured pants, and slinky slip dresses. Many of which were topped off with witch-like hoods on the models’ heads.
//As is tradition at Katie’s shows, the hair and makeup complimented the theme perfectly. MAC Director of Makeup Artistry Romero Jennings (a frequent Katie Gallagher collaborator) created a striking red lip that matched the corresponding red pieces in the collection .
To get the red lip look: Romero filled in models’ entire lips with MAC Kiss Me Quick Lip Liner. Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick was then applied over top to complete the look.
Amy Farid for Amika created an undone look for the hair. Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray was massaged into hair, and lightly blown dry. Next, a flat iron was used to create a slight wave in the hair. The look was finished by spraying UnDone Texture Spray on hair, and removing small pieces of hair from the capes to flow loosely.
