ROMANCE WAS BORN
Romance Was Born encompasses both new and classic modes of fashion resulting in playful elegance. Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales met whilst studying fashion design and launched their Sydney based label in 2005. Otherworldly prints form the basis of each collection. The designers take inspiration from artists, often working with them collaboratively to create a unique language each season. Previous collaborations include working with artists including Del Kathryn Barton and Kate Rhode. Plunkett and Sales share an obsession for detail - from the naivety of craft to the perfection of a couturier, both elements inform their collections. The pair are known for their ambitious and often theatrical runway shows that realise the Romance Was Born vision. Each show production becomes a dreamscape to explore vast themes of fantasy and vibrant imagery.
