Katie_Gallagher FW18 LOOK BOOK 005

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of documenting behind the scenes at the look book photo shoot for Katie Gallagher’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection “True Red”.

One of my favorite local designers, and someone I’ve been covering since my first ever season of NYFW, Katie’s designs continue to evolve and impress me more each season.

The clothing featured so many fun details this season. Lace up hats and leg adornments, cut outs, and as always, a lot of mesh and sheer panels.

In February, Katie presented the full collection at Mail Room, in downtown NYC. It was perfectly complemented by the dark, cavernous space. Featuring a set decorated by roses, and vintage candelabras.

Katie Gallagher Fall-Winter 2015 082

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 .

Katie Gallagher: Fall/Winter 2014 Backstage

Katie Gallagher- Backstage Fall-Winter 2014 006

Katie Gallagher is a designer who I’ve followed since nearly the beginning of her career. Season after season, she impresses me with her continual growth as a designer and artist. Few other young designers in NYC so accurately conceptualize and transition a theme or idea into a clothing collection.

For Fall 2014, Katie’s collection Wonderland was inspired by abandoned amusement parks. The idea of “childlike details” and decay transitioned into details like giant hair bows worn by models, and worn in details of the clothing.

Her shows also feature one of the most symbiotic relationships between a collection’s theme or inspiration, the actual clothes, and the beauty looks worn by models. A process aided by working year after year with such strong creative team, consisting of MAC Director of Makeup Artistry Romero Jennings, and Catwalk by TIGI’s Global Creative Director Nick Irwin.

This season, Nick Irwin developed a look that “juxtaposed sleep transition into natural texture.”

Not a brand to shy away from bold beauty, or overindulge in “neutrals” (one of the biggest nyfw show crimes, in my opinion!) Kate Spade is season after season, one of my favorite backstages to document.

It’s just so good to attend a show that is FUN! With equally fun hair and makeup.
