I'm really curious to see the work of Katie Gargan tonight. The girl just graduated from high school, and she's already created her first line, KG, and has been selling it at IDOM all season. Tomorrow she heads to college in SF where she plans to major in international studies while marketing her line to Cali boutiques. When I was 18 I was lucky to get my hair combed in the morning.
She'll be showing in conjunction with Tafv Simpson, another local designer whose colorful chaotic aesthetic seems like a nice contrast to Katie's more classic sensibility.
