NYFW AW ’15: Backstage at Katie Gallagher

+

Katie Gallagher proved there’s strength in simplicity this season, with a collection that committed exclusively to a color story of lipstick red and jet black. The young designer cited her color synesthesia as a source of inspiration, designing the collection’s silhouettes to look like physical interpretations of her personal perception. With color synesthesia, Gallagher associates numbers and letters with the experience of colors, which explains why color alone was a strong, reoccurring motif this season.  The monochromatic color palette transcended into the Crown by Born shoes and Romero Jennings for Mac Cosmetics makeup, as well.
