Up & Coming Designer Katie Gallagher of Veil
Only one year out of college, up & coming designer and Rhode Island School of Design-graduate Katie Gallagher spared no time launching her all-black collection, Veil, during New York’s Fashion Week this past September. The collection launched the new designer into the spotlight with buzz amongst editors, buyers, and fashionistas alike. A former intern for threeASFOUR and Anna Sui, Katie fell for fashion as a teen. “When I was in high school I used to vintage shop a lot and hack up the clothes I’d buy and turn them into something new,” the designer explains.
This New Designer’s Upcoming Fall/Winter Collection
Unlike her debut, Katie Gallagher’s fall/winter collection features hints of white, gray, and cream in flattering, well-tailored pieces with layered textures. Katie favors leather, silk, lycra, and jersey. The line is sold at Eva, Seven, and Oak in New York, and at I.T. in Hong Kong; and orders can be placed through email@example.com. Her line starts at $200 for some of her tops and leggings to a high of $5,800 for the Banded Jacket seen above.

Up & Coming Designer Amanda Eufer of EuforiA
With her jewelry line, EuforiA, focusing on statement pieces, up & coming designer and native Texan Amanda Eufer lives by the phrase, “Go big or go home.” Having started with sugar-coated rings, this feminine yet edgy collection expanded to necklaces, bracelets, and earrings for those unafraid of bold accessories.
Amanda Eufer fell in love with fashion early on, when her mother would teach her about the sewing, materials, and patterns she used to make Amanda’s dresses for figure-skating competitions. With a degree in apparel design and production from Oklahoma State University, she interned at Marc Jacobs before working as Joanna Mastroianni’s assistant. There, this up & coming designer learned sketching techniques, draping, construction, sales, and styling. Now, Amanda works as a PR manager for a fashion and lifestyle public relations firm.
