Katie Gallagher S/S 12: Roaringly fierce with her highly stylised extreme silhouettes

 

It really pleases me when I see young designers in New York playing to their strengths and really asserting who they are as designers rather than ticking off trends in a scramble to get onto collection round-up pages.  Gallagher’s aesthetic isn’t for everyone but it is rip roaringly fierce with her highly stylised extreme silhouettes.  She sticks to a strict palette of red and black but has variety when it comes to the textures and fabrics, be it a cob-webby knit, fish net or a sheer mesh jacket trimmed with ribbon.  If Emily Strange looked a little sexier, she’d definitely turn to Gallagher’s new collection.
