Katie Gallagher thrills with Gris-Gris


image: S.Whittle for Style WyldeDesigning with the mass-market in mind is something Katie Gallagher is clearly not concerned about doing. Nor are you likely to find her doing a GO! International line any time soon. Instead, Gallagher is making her mark as a leader in a group of young designers who are putting their artistic points of view at the center of their work, and bringing expressionism, creativity, and a much needed jolt of energy back to the fashion industry.
