KATIE GALLAGHER FALL/WINTER 2015

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 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.”

KATIE GALLAGHER S/S 2013: BACKSTAGE

Any longtime readers of my blog know that Katie Gallagher is a favorite designer of mine. One of the most avant-garde and risk taking young designers currently working in NYC, I’ve seen her grow in both talent and popularity over the past few years. (Her second ever show was one of the first presentations I ever photographed.) Not only does she have talent in spades, she’s also incredibly sweet too.

This season, Katie’s collection was entitled “Everything Forever”. It“is inspired by the concept of rebirth and purity…an ode to the remnants of our past, which are ingrained in us and ever-present. Despite infliction, the soul can remain pure. However, everything we do is in us forever.” — via the show’s line sheet
