After a pretty disappointing Spring 2012 collection, Katie Gallagher is back with a more evolved aesthetic that does not compromise her traditionally edgy style. Gallagher’s designs have outfitted the likes of Daphne Guinness and Lady Gaga, and after her F/W 2012 presentation we can see why. Bright spotlights in an otherwise stark showroom illuminated minimally made-up models with fuzzy up-dos. Contrast lighting complimented the earthy-hued collection of dresses, maxi skirts, leggings, and tailored jackets. The designer mixes soft, sheer fabrics alongside stiffer textiles in a way that would make even Rick Owens proud. If this collection of beautifully tailored pieces in luxurious fabrics and hues is any indication of what is yet to come from the young designer, we are certainly ready for more.
