One of our favourite Brisbane designer’s – Gail Sorronda – has just been hand picked for the new Dolce & Gabbana boutique, Spiga2, that is opening soon in Milan! Gail will have 30 pieces in the store which will also feature the work of 20 other designers. We are very proud!
‘Wow!’ is all we can say about Gail Sorronda’s Spring/Summer collection, which showed last night at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Using her signature black and white, Brisbane designer Gail Reid has really outdone herself with a diverse range that offers everything from flowing dresses and sheer tops, to smart suit jackets and feminine skirts and dresses, set off perfectly with huge bead and metal necklaces. The hair styling and hair accessories were amazing and just further added to the collection and what is always expected from this creative designer. We can’t wait for the new collection to hit the stores!
