Gail Reid bound for Roberto Cavalli?

Well so Reid told me last night at the L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival opening ceremony, that was staged inside the Victorian Italianate splendour of the state ballroom of Melbourne's Government House - a whisper of which is visible in the background of this shot. No, there are apparently no plans to discontinue Reid's Gail Sorronda label. Reid reports she is planning to commute between her Paris base and Cavalli's Florence headquarters as a contracted freelance consultant. A gig that would no doubt do wonders for her cashflow, not to mention provide an invaluable insight into the machinations of a major European fashion house.

I like Gail's work, although I do wish it wasn't photoed in B/W all the time so that I could fully appreciate it. Also, she's very attractive. And, I like Cavalli's stuff too.

So, best of luck to the both of them! ;)

that's an odd match up i thought, cavalli seems so very overtly sexual whereas gail sorronda isn't. but it would be great to see what happens.

...Gail's collections are (as far as I know) all black & white... so colour photography wouldn't do much to change that.
