Gail Sorronda Spring Summer 2011/12 - Stem The Flow
Inspired by the bulbous shape of liquid and the flow of aqueous movement intercepted by time. It's an exploration of fluidity and freedom versus restraint. Sometimes a trickle, sometimes an avalanche...
Working in her signature monochromatic palette, Gail Reid weaved magic with textures, shapes, volumes and finishes. Layers of black and white delicately dance around the body in voluminous dresses with organic spherical lines and pleating and gathering that create a feeling of suspension. Tailored jackets and shirts drip from the body and pleated culottes and butterfly sleeves further emphasise liquidity and flow.
The show closed against a projected backdrop of a film element created by Sydney based artists Lyn & Tony with a look topped by a wide brimmed tulle hat by Richard Nylon for Gail Sorronda.
