Gail Sorronda at Australia Fashion Week: Mermaids Exist

Australian designer Gail Sorronda kicked off the second day of Australian Fashion Week with a collection, aptly named ‘Mermaids Exist’, that boasted collaborations with both Disney and Queensland Ballet for a Little Mermaid inspired collection. Unlike other ‘Under the Sea’ inspired collections ( see Kenzo, for example) there was a softer approach at this show-with light tulle and sheer materials, we saw elegance and femininity. This isn’t to say that there weren’t lots of obvious hints towards The Little Mermaid though, because we were given skirt shapes that gave the illusion of fishtails, glistening sequin detailing for a glamorous hint towards scales and an even bigger hint was the cartoon print of Ariel, Sebastian and lots of other sea life across the blank canvas of an all white outfit . Not only did we see light, neutral creams and whites, but Sorronda cleverly incorporated lobster red hues and a bright turquoises that were all reminiscent of The Little Mermaid story we know and love! Even accessories were on point, from jewellery that resembled coral, sea weed and driftwood, to structured crown detailing!

I definitely ❤ this collection-who knew mixing Disney and Fashion could come off so well?
