GRIS-GRIS by Katie Gallagher

Posted in Fashion Week, Lookbook by strytllng on February 21, 2011



Katie Gallagher, the upcoming designer from New York City, sent me an invitation for her Fall Winter 2011-2012 presentation at the Milk Studios … AND I COULDN’T GO. (Transatlantic trips are just a bit too much sometimes.)

Fortunate me still got a glimpse at the new Fall Winter 2011-2012 collection from the princess of dark designs. I must applaud Gallagher for spicing up her signature look of dark layered texture and light legwear with colorings of bright yellows here and there while managing to stay true to the gothic and voodoo themes.

Whether or not heavy make up is your thing, you like the entire look or prefer individual pieces,  the GRIS GRIS collection is an eyecatcher yet minimalistic enough to be invited into many wardrobes across the globe.

Fashion Week is here and I wanted to share some impressions from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in July 2010 to get you warmed-up. Are you in the mood for Fashion Week season 2011 yet? With the moving and all I haven’t had the time to prepare much. I have some appointments and invitations but my head is still unfolding boxes and putting together the furniture. Actually, it is a good way to clear my mind. The kick-off for me is tomorrow morning at Belgian designer A.F.Vandevorst’s show. If I will ever find my equipment, I will report back ASAP.

Oversized shirts with asymmetrical cuts with light-as-air colors and fabric, yet melancholy  –  solitude and boredom have never been this appealing.

Katie Gallagher SS11 Arena Preview from her presentation at New York Fashion Week. The lookbook will follow soon but so far it is sporty yet aggressive with the typical dark and mystic Katie Gallagher note that made me fall in love with her amazing designs over a year ago.

London Fashion Week: Dark Romanticism at Gemma Slack AW 2010

This dark and mystic collection may not be everybodies darling for the gothic inspired collection is certainly aiming at an edgier fashion crowd but the video presentation is a must see. It is probably one of the best I have seen in a long time.

*New York Fashion Week News* Katie Gallagher FW 2010-2011

Young designer Katie Gallagher is slowly starting to take over my fashionheart completely. It was love at first sight when I saw her S/S 2010 collection for the first time. Her designs are all about figure fitting with yet a very structural character. Katie Gallagher may not be a fan of the rainbow colors but her designs are multifaceted by details.

The New York based designer who has worked for such names as Anna Sui, has presented her A/W 2010-2011 collection during New York Fashion Week and gave her latest collection the interesting name: “The Heart of the Woods and What I Found There.”

My inspiration for the collection came originally, by a landscape painting that I created as well as my pencil/line drawings.

The collection is very focused on wrapping and layering the curves of the female body with non traditional patternmaking and tailoring. Her unconventional approach towards designing shows more than ever in this latest collection.
