KATIE GALLAGHER BACKSTAGE Hair by Cesar Ramirez/Make-Up by MAC

MADE@Standard Hotel, NYC

words/images Judith Ecochard

Katie Gallagher's Spring 2013 collection, titled "Everything Forever" ---with thoughts on past/present "...the concept of rebirth and purity..."was a terrific outing of very feminine form fitting silhouettes-in leathers, sheer textiles-draped/ruched--- in neutral tones (ivory, crème, raven and metallic slate)...that had an ethereal, haunting air----

Moody, gothic, with a Game of Thrones vibes...forest/trees/nature...we thought the apparel was sophisticated, modern ---and the hair/make-up/nails---creatively meshed with the overall concept of the ode to "remnants of our past..." that are ever-present. cuffs by Megan Issacs
Topknots---effortless looking (ha ha)---loved!!!

Crafted by Ceasar Ramirez (DopDop salon)-using hair products by Moroccan Oil and hair tools by T3...the hair is casual chic personified...actually three pieces  twisted just so... and pined...a hairdo take on the idea of timelessness-with no apparent beginning or end to the soft, shiny "infinite twists."

curl control mousse-light feeling without the tack
