She has also engaged in brand extension with a diffusion line, Katie by Katie Gallagher which consists of tops, bottoms, dresses and unique pieces of jewelry.
Katie can be described as eccentric ever since she was a kid and would wear her pet cat on her head! Her creative process is also quite interesting. She has said, “Everything I make starts with my paintings, which I’ve done every season prior to construction.
