Katie Gallagher’s fascinating mystic collection in an attempt to scare us off.
Inspired by a voodoo talisman’s bag, she presents an intriguingly uncanny proposal on alternative dressing. Grays and blacks, asymmetries and paradoxical volumes invite us to a world of modern urban mythologies.
A gris-gris bag is a voodoo talisman. A cloth bag filled with hair, bones, nails and dirt. A piece of leather, an animal tooth, dove’s blood. A spell to ward off evil; sometimes to create it. A talisman that holds secrets and secret intentions. And, the inspiration for the Katie Gallagher Autumn-Winter line.
