The Katie Gallagher presentation last night at Milk exceeded my expectations by far. I have never attended one of her collections, but was excited from press junkets + editorial i'd seen in the past featuring her work. Her inspiration came from the sanguine blood flowing every second beneath the exterior of our skin and how it's hidden from the outside world never to be seen. It all came to life seeing the deep reds against the black silhouettes. What really popped was when you look at all the un-even textured pieces combined to create each look. It fit together like one huge brain teasing puzzle, but none the less beautiful! And i'm loving those "rounded asian flip flop-looking wedges". That's about as easy as I can explain it to myself. Such a great presentation for next summer! I can't wait to become a regular season go'er to her shows. She is definitely a deconstructed pattern-making genius!
