Designer Profile: Katie Gallagher

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Hope you are enjoying your New Year's Eve!

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing New York designer Katie Gallagher in her studio for Dossier Journal and wanted to share some photos which were not used for the writeup.









Katie, a RISD-educated womenswear designer, who recently took a big risk with an all-black debut collection for New York Fashion Week, was a delightful subject and really sweet in person, despite her dark romantic aesthetic.

For F/W '10, she plans to continue designing dark layered separates, with flashes of cream, grey and green. Her voluminous leather jackets are elegant pieces which caught the eye of editors at Vogue Italia and buyers at boutiques such as IT in Hong Kong and EVA in New York.





All images above are mine except for the lookbook images, which are courtesy of the designer's website.

Ohh how cool you had a chance to meet her ! Love her designs :)

Diana said...

1. she has awesome bed head hair
2. she has a cat
3. her collection is all black. many designers try to incorporate color, they completely leave out black. love this and will be looking out for her name in the near future.

I love her designs! Those lookbook shots are fantastic as well. It's funny you mentioned I.T in Hong Kong, because I've been spending way too much time there ;-)

Hope you had a great Christmas as well and a terrific New Year!

Gabbi said...

Great photos and such a gorgeous girl. I love the candy corn tattoo and her cat... reminds me of George of course.♥

Wishing you a wonderful New Year dear D!

@Treacle: Yes she designs leggings as well! The workmanship on her pieces is extraordinary. You really have to see them in person to appreciate how much work goes into making it look effortless.

Love this designer profile mostly because she shares my love for all-black ensembles haha. Katie's gorgeous too, I love the stark contrast between her light hair and dark eyes - it's mysterious. and I love her cat! I have a particular love for grey cats.
