#NYFW: 60 Seconds with Katie Gallagher
In what felt like the blink of an eye, New York Fashion Week is upon us again! We got up close and personal with today’s established and emerging designers alike. See what Katie Gallagher had to say when we asked her about Spring 2015 in this season’s “60 Seconds” Q&A.
The Fabulous Report (TFR): What can we expect from your spring collection?
Katie Gallagher (KG): The S/S15 Collection is called Fantasm. Themes of color and colorlessness and the inconstant or impermanent nature of things are central to the collection.
TFR: Speaking of designs–if you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
KG: A white Comme Des Garcons dress from the SS2012 collection. Like the one shown here.
TFR: What is the one beauty product you can’t live without?
KG: Badger Damascus Rose Beauty Balm.
TFR: Your favorite song of the moment?
KG: Coldreams- Eyes.
TFR: Red or white wine?
KG: White in the summer, red in the winter.
TFR: How do you take your coffee?
KG: Depends on the time of day. In the morning, usually black. Milk sometimes, no sugar, ever.
TFR: What’s your guilty pleasure?
KG: Singular songs on repeat. All day and into the next day and sometimes weeks.
TFR: Did you take a vacation this summer? If so, where did you go?
KG: No 🙁
TFR: If you could design for a Disney character– which one would you choose?
KG: Do the Sanderson sisters count?
TFR: What’s your favorite way to unwind?
KG: Running and/or a pilates session. Steaming is also one of my favorites. At night, wine.
TFR: What’s your favorite restaurant?
KG: Dining is one of my favorite things to do in NYC, so this is always hard. I’m in to kale salads right now and I dream about the one at Greenpoint Heights (Greenpoint) and The Runner (Clinton Hill). Chicken Satays are my favorite food and they definitely have some of the best ones at Sticky Rice on Orchard Street.
TFR: How will you celebrate the completion of the show?
KG: We have drinks together right after the show, and then it’s pretty much right back to work, designing the next collection!
Katie Gallagher will showcase her S/S 2015 collection on Friday, September 5.
