cult worthy: katie gallagher


Katie Gallagher is Cult Worthy.

At just the age of 29, designer Katie Gallagher has come a long way. She started her eponymous brand in September of 2009, distinguishing her work with predominantly black garments and a gothic flare. For her fall/winter collection, Katie Gallagher has struck yet again with the cutting-edge "Navy Eyes" collection. She drew inspiration from the neurological condition synesthesia, which causes an individual to perceive touch, taste, sight, hearing, and smell as colors. She expertly incorporated this unique theme with strictly red and black, and created shapes that form flowing silhouettes. It makes us actually want the weather to drop so we can start sporting these looks. 
Here, we chat with Gallagher about her beginnings in the fashion industry, her latest collection, and advice for young fashion lovers.
How did you become a fashion designer? When did you discover this was your dream career? 
Becoming a fashion designer, for me, happened very organically. I actually never really intended on it at all. I loved to paint and draw...and to make clothes out of pretty much anything. I declared apparel design instead of painting as my major at Rhode Island School of Design. I really liked the idea of majoring in almost everything at school; I could not decide! But here I am.
What's the Katie Gallgher signature? 
You’ll rarely find a side seam or unnecessary embellishment on my garments. I like to allow the lines of a garment to flow with the lines and curves of our bodies. This makes for a perfect fit. To achieve this sort of fit, a lot of unconventional pattern making is involved. 
What advice would you give to young designers and fashion lovers that want to get established?
Becoming a fashion designer is far from glamorous. Be very persistent, disciplined, and strong.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
