When it comes to finding a fab frock for the coming festive season, Rachel Gilbert's first bricks-and-mortar store should be on your hit-list. Party dresses with plenty of shine are the speciality of this home-grown designer, and we have a feeling that her first flagship, located at The Intersection in Sydney's Paddington, will be choc-full of glamour-girls on the hunt for the perfect New Year's Eve/Christmas Party/special occasion frock. The Nick Tobias designed space is as chic as it is understated, allowing the glistening rack of gowns to be the focus of shoppers' attentions. Has it whet your appetite? We picked our five favourite high-shine sparklers from her e-boutique, so even if you're not a Sydney-sider you can still get the party started.
