When fashion designers inspire you to start gluing pearl-covered origami to your eyes, you know you've come across something special. That special someone is Romance Was Born.
S/S 2013 2014
Since they first met while studying at East Sydney Technical College, the pair have carved their niche in the Australian fashion scene with their outlandish designs and theatrical catwalk shows.
They have designed for a number of musicians, including Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Lilly Allen and Architecture in Helsinki. Inspiration for their shows have included Captain Planet and Freddie Kruger.
They are super crafty, weird and seem to have been that way forever. They are psychedelic and futuristic, but I feel like all of Australia is. Their work is on a whole new level, above trends.
