Dark. Romantic. Bold. Mysterious. This sums up the captivating SS17 collection of Katie Gallagher. I absolutely loved being this grungy girl for the night, dressed up in a very haute couture inspired outfit. It was something completely out of my comfort zone, yet, not at all outside my comfort zone. I would dress up, ready for a runway show every single day if I could.
Supporting smaller designers is the way to go. They work so hard and it amazes me the amount of time and effort that goes into designing and following through with a runway show. Go her. For following her dreams and taking risks. SO INSPIRING.
About Katie Gallagher – Eclipse SS17
Secretive, unknown, mysterious, Black, the darkest color yet the color with no color at all, represents both full absorption and complete absence of light, evil and elegance. Constantly inspired by this hue that has no hue, Katie Gallagher’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Eclipse, is her third all-black collection, followed by last season’s all black collection, Veiled and her initial collection, S/S 2010, Veil.
Gallagher’s current monochromatic collection relies on textures and subtle details, highlighting her obsessions with gothic architecture, Harry Clarke illustrations and traditional Catholic rituals and symbols. She complements these heavy themes with lightweight fabrics and whimsical embroidery.
Through Eclipse, Gallagher combines Swiss Dot sheer jackets with delicate lace and pony fur, English tulle skirts and tops feature embroidered hearts, dots and crosses. Gallagher pairs gathered, twisted seams with grosgrain ribbons and silver zippers, defining her SS17 collection.
I had such a blast with my bestie, viewing the collection, meeting our Instagram friends for the first time. It was a magical night that ended in lots of laughs and new friends.
