‘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!

Get Gail Sorronda’s Autumn/Winter collection now at Bessie Head, Broadway on the Mall, Queen Street Mall.
