You already know how obsessed we are with Katie Gallagher. The rising New York-based designer really knows how to tug at our gothic heart strings with her witchy, Wednesday Addams-inspired pieces—and her fall 2013 collection was no different. Her navy, raven, and slate ensembles consisted of gorge laser cut leather, cozy knits, and slim-fitting silhouettes. Personally, we loved the curve-hugging, hooded navy gown with intricate wavy details and a killer, stem-like leather belt. We were also obsessed with how Katie took a simple body-con dress and added laser cut leather cuffs to completely transform the look. Also, um, peep that long sleeve hunter green crop top. It has mesh paneling! #WANT For the beauty look, Katie had her models wear partially slicked back hair and light, powdery blue eyeshadow without any mascara, while the rest of the face was left clean and simple. For the nails, though, WHEW! It’s a whole different story. Nail artist Miss Pop ba-rought the drama with her transparent, stiletto tips with black and white polka dot detailing. AMAZING.
But, no show is complete without some KILLER beats, so we caught up with the DJ (Kevin Doxsey) during the presentation to get the details behind the music. The mix was a collaboration between Kevin and Katie Gallagher’s stylist Heather Breen, DJ H. Christ, and they opted for some seriously mellow and melancholy vibes to really set the mood for Katie’s dark and mournful collection. They included songs from the Cocteau Twins and Burzum, but we were lucky enough to get our hands on the ENTIRE. MIX. That’s right, y’all—you can hear the full, hour-long, awesomely-spooky sounding set below. Give it a listen, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
