The Sunshine Girls will be styling in Australia for the upcoming Netball World Cup.

Before the world's number-four-ranked team left the island, they were fÍted in style by their major sponsor Best Dressed Chicken on July 21.

They were presented with a cheque valued at $5 million, but the icing on the cake was their wardrobe.

Renowned fashion designer Lisa McIntosh (Neah Lis) presented the girls with their special line designed just for them - Tropical Glam.

High-waisted skirts with all-the-way-up-there slits in vibrant colours representing the spirit of the region, will be a staple in every player's suitcase - perfect for the numerous events they will be attending during their sojourn down south.

Neahlis noted that the pieces are a true representation of a bright nation. "Jamaica is a tropical island that is all about style and sophistication, so it was easy to choose from the variety of fabrics, colours, and prints that jumped out at me in the fabric store."

The icing on the cake came in the form of a new home and away uniform courtesy of retail giant Gilbert, a long-time supporter of the Sunshine Girls.

With the fabulous fashion the Girls will be sporting on and off the court, the world cup trophy will be the perfect accessory.
