Things were a bit chaotic with hotel guests having no idea there was a fashion show about to commence. As the models began walking to their assigned spots, a group of unsuspecting businessmen sitting nearby immediately turned red in the face.
With nobody knowing if this was a runway show or presentation until the models emerged from backstage, guests awkwardly struggled to move around the small space and take pictures. Despite feeling somewhat claustrophobic by the whole situation, I was rather impressed to see the models remain unflustered.
Katie calls her collection “The Heart of the Woods and What I Found There.” With slow, creepy music playing in the background, I felt as if I slipped into her creative world for an hour. The presentation provided guests a more personal setting to view her clothes.
Half of Gallagher’s models were dressed in all black clothing, with a mixture of paired thick and thin fabrics in each look. The second half featured lighter fabrics and colors. Leather, leggings, and oversized jackets were staples in her collection.
I really appreciate Gallagher’s design aesthetic and her creative way of approaching rocker-like fashion. With wild, crazy hair and bright-colored eye-makeup worn on her models, every detail worked together to complete this collection.
