Wardrobe Stylist Katie Laggis Riffs on Style to Set the Mood for NYFW
Katie’s a veteran photo stylist who’s worked with clients across the United States. Her personal uniform has always been baggy pants and T-shirts so it might surprise even those who know her best that Katie’s favorite designers are actually the ultra-girly ones: Nina Ricci, Marchesa, and in particular, . Not only does Katie admire Ferretti's ethereal designs, she respects her endurance and overall contribution to the fashion world: "She still designs for her own house, which is impressive, but she’s also held her own for nearly 50 years in a tough business. When people talk about the great Italian fashion houses they speak of Alberta Ferretti in the same sentence as Armani, Versace, Gucci and Valentino."
We'll have to wait until later this month for Milan Fashion Week to see what Ferretti's been up to, but meanwhile, we're loving this sheer purple Alberta Ferretti dress (pictured above) that Katie spied a few years back while poking around in a consignment store in Oakland, California, and styled to perfection.
