Katie Gallagher SS15

KATIE GALLAGHER SS15 FASHION SHOW (Bradley Rothenberg, Greg Schroy, Gautam Jain, Matt Leta)

Katie Gallagher’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is titled, Fantasm (the original spelling of the modern-day word phantasm, which describes something that exists in perception only).  The themes of color and colorlessness and the inconstant or impermanent nature of things were central to this collection.  The illusory essence of the word Fantasm captures the idea of seeing the true complexion of something just before it fades away — like the changing appearance of naturally occurring elements like dew or smoke just before they diminish into transparency or the faint luminance of a memory just before it disappears from one’s mind.
