Fashion Designer Kathryn Gallagher Was Murdered Via Overdose, Police Say

  • March 31, 2023

Fashion designer Kathryn Gallagher, who worked with celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Laverne Cox, died in July 2022. Police only recently confirmed that Gallagher was the woman who was found dead at the scene of an apartment in New York City last summer. According to PEOPLE, the authorities have determined that Gallagher died of a homicide. The fashion designer’s official cause of death was acute intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl, p-fluorofentanyl, and ethanol.

The medical examiner’s office reported that Gallagher died of a drug-facilitated theft. Although, police have not confirmed whether anything was taken from her apartment. The night before Gallagher died, a neighbor reportedly helped her inside her apartment. The same neighbor later noticed that the key was still inside the lock of the apartment and went to check on her, finding the designer unresponsive. Gallagher, who was 35 years old at the time of her death, was later pronounced dead at the scene. 

At the moment, the authorities have not identified any suspects in Gallagher’s death. However, her manner of passing is one of 26 that occurred between March 18 and Dec. 8 that police are investigating. Gallagher was reportedly the victim of a string of drug-related robberies that have left five others dead. 

Prior to her passing, Gallagher worked as a successful fashion designer and stylist. After launching her eponymous clothing line in 2010, she has had 26 collections that have appeared in New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. gallagher-09-ap-1986-2022″In the obituary shared by her alma mater, Rhode Island School of

Hicks, 29, is a New York City-based British artist who’s built up over 85,000 followers on her @angelicahicks Instagram account. She posts illustrations inspired by fashion and culture, and more recently, budget re-creations of high fashion designs including Teresa Giudice’s wedding dress using toilet paper and Naomi Campbell’s 2022 Balenciaga show gown using trash bags.

According to her website, Hicks’ artwork has led to collaborations with The Metropolitan Museum of Art ahead of the 2019 Met Gala, as well as Gucci and Yoox Net-a-Porter Group.

Speaking about her popular format of re-creating designer looks, Hicks told Insider: “It’s like playing dress-up for a grown-up.”

Hicks said she existed “on the periphery of fashion” after studying history of art at college.

Hicks said she completed her degree at University College London and felt peer pressure to take a more traditional route into art.

“People were asking, ‘Which art gallery are you going to go and work for?” And I was like, ‘I really don’t want to do that,'” Hicks told Insider. She added that she found more flexibility as a freelance illustrator when she moved to New York City after graduation, and fashion became a natural source of inspiration for her work.

The artist’s Instagram videos show her selecting a celebrity or runway look and transforming everyday household items into a near-identical dupe.
