Kite Tails: First look at the second summer of Ginger & Smart

Frockwriter loved Ginger & Smart’s first spring/summer 0910 collection at RAFW, entitled Sky Dancer. In fact we thought the collection - highlights from which included rainbow maxi dresses and tough chic grommeted gilets - was probably the strongest that sisters Alexandra and Genevieve Smart have shown at the event. Well on the eve of the sophomore edition of IMG FASHION Asia Pacific's new consumer-focussed Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival, at which Ginger & Smart will present a mélange of their first and second summer collections on Saturday night, here is an exclusive preview of that second summer collection. Called Kite Tails, it is similarly inspired by children’s kites. Here is also the brief (and sadly low audio quality) backstage interview we did with the Smarts after the RAFW show. Click here for the full RSFF schedule, which kicks off officially at tonight with Jayson Brunsdon’s show. Frockwriter will be on the scene, reporting live via Twitter.
