Katie Gallagher founded her eponymous womenswear label in 2009. The New York-based brand began producing mainly black garments with a gothic aesthetic which continues throughout collections today.
Romantic and edgy, Katie Gallagher designs take a minimalist approach with minimal detailing. This ensures a focus on interesting shapes and cuts which have an avant-garde appeal. The brand produces bold, conceptual designs which are unconventional yet wearable. Throughout collections, rich and textured fabrics are often used, such as sumptuous velvets and structured tulle. Mesh details and deconstructed tailoring add a signature edge to more simple silhouettes in monochromatic palettes. Leggings have become signature to the brand, produced in a variety of colours, featuring mesh materials and with exposed seams. Often dark, Katie Gallagher pieces are designed to be both layered and worn alone, adding a versatility to statement styles.
Increasingly, the label is becoming more environmentally conscious, with dead stock and recycled fabrics used throughout new collections. The brand has an online store where Katie Gallagher collections can be accessed.
