One of the world’s top digital stars, Adam Gallagher of I Am Galla travels the far-flung corners of the globe to create his stunning life and style edits. A fan of the road less travelled, the New York-based influencer is known for his breathtaking imagery both on his website and through his social channels. And when it comes to setting the style scene for his shoots, he’s a master of infusing the classics with his own brand of contemporary cool.
Joining Harrods Destination Party in Istanbul, we invited Adam to style up two exclusive looks for day and night, alongside six fellow digital fashion influencers from around the globe.
"When it comes to parties, I like the classic, more simple approach. I love a sharp suit or a tuxedo if it’s that sort of party, but I also love a good open collar on a shirt like James Bond. If I do opt for a tie it would be very Kennedy-esque. The classics - that’s what I draw my inspiration from."
On Parties In New York...
"New York gets pretty fun during holiday season and then again in the summer. There are a lot, so I only go to the parties which really excite me."
"Details are really important. Anyone can put on a suit, but it’s the accessories that really do the talking."
"The opportunity to work with Harrods and be in Istanbul has been great. Bringing together influencers from around the world with their diverse styles and blogs is a great representation of Harrods and the different styles it offers."
"I’m really interested in how fashion in the States has become really lifestyle. Technology is being worked into it, along with art and music, and it’s really exciting to see the direction it’s going in."
"I believe there aren’t too many rules. It really depends on the individual. I personally can’t do patterns together – but then I see really cool guys who can pull off checks with stripes and look great. My advice is be you and if you want to be daring then go for it."
"Travelling is my passion. My blog and my brand are really taking a travel and lifestyle focus now. When we plan a trip we like to take time and really explore that country to find incredible places to shoot. One of my favourite places to visit has been Greece, it is just so beautiful."
"With packing – I tend to throw a bunch of things I like in the suitcase and hope it works out in the end! I also love to buy things when I’m out there too."
"It was actually a hobby, I was 17-years old, I was just graduating High School and I got voted 'Best Dressed' and so I felt inspired to do something with it. I took it to the internet and the rest is history."
