stem the flow

Brisbane talent Gail Sorronda keeps on in her attempt
to stem the rising tide of overused gaudy clichés by
strengthening her label's costumary black & white
dualism I came to admire last year in Milano (here)
presenting her new s/s 2012 collection properly
called ”Stem the flow”’ at RAFW.

A gripping black & white 'newstalgie' showing 
floating shirt dresses in natural fibers inspired by
the bulbous shape of liquid and its own flow in
a clever exploration of fluid forms true to her 
dark-romantic aesthetic. ”From the beginning I
designed using only white and black (...) 

I like the darkness of black and the purity 
of white...” she said in a press talk.

Currently based in London, looking to develop
trans-seasonal collections, she showed once again
her 'form follows function' idea of fashion as well
as her taste for round hats and headpieces,
this time with multilayered tulle circled brims,
perhaps alluding to concentric water waves:
a joy from stem to stern!
