With Sydney in a fashion frenzy thanks to MBFWA, my Instagram has exploded with pics of some truly impressive Australian talent. The belle of the ball by far, however, is Romance Was Born.
The label was officially launched by designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales in 2005, who have a reputation for transforming “fashion into a glimmering chimerical paradise full of wonderment.”
Their spring/summer 2013 collection, “Mushroom Magic”, lived up to the hype, taking a trip (double entendre intended) down the rabbit hole with an Alice In Wonderland meets Yellow Submarine meets Marvin the Martian inspired show, including an amazing fantasy land set by artist Pip and Pop.
“The clothes – which inspired awe and joy – are a wholly unique expression of two artists unbound by the kind of rules designated by sales managers and trend forecasters. This is freedom in fashion; fearless and fucking fantastic,” said Pedestrian TV (see more incredible images of the collection here). I could not agree more.
