Fashion Insider: Katie Lyall Of Chaos
How do industry insiders pack for fashion week, who do they follow on Instagram and what items are they coveting from the latest collections? We take a peek behind the curtain with five key fashion-industry females to find out.
Here, we chat with Katie Lyall, co-founder and creative director at Chaos:
What are some of the things about your job that you love doing?
Having ideas, solving problems, laughing and breaking rules.
What's a fashion rule you break all the time?
Dress codes. I always get them wrong.
What's the bag of the season?
Chanel's Gabrielle bag is still my favourite, and I love it in all sizes.
What's your go-to outfit when you're in a rush in the morning?
A Balenciaga blazer and a men's shirt.
Secret beauty hack?
Excessive amounts of Crème de la Mer moisturiser and Chanel Soleil Identité—it's the perfect amount of natural tan.
What's your most prized fashion possession?
The first Chanel bag Karl Lagerfeld ever gave me.
If you could travel back in time, what fashion era would you choose?
I'd love to revisit the late '80s and early '90s for a no-budget shopping spree. Imagine all the Chanel, Versace, Alaïa and Mugler you could get your hands on. The dream.
