backstage: romance was born

The Romance Was Born show at Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week was a wonderful way to kick off our time here in Sydney; the show had an upbeat and whimsical superhero theme, complete with fire red hair, alien-like eye makeup and comic book prints. The energy backstage and in the front row at the Romance Was Born show is always one of excitement and anticipation; the brand is lauded in its home country as one of their only homegrown 'couturiers'. The label's creators, Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett, are sweethearts themselves and highly creative designers that are not hindered by conventional design 'rules'. If there's anyone who deserves such great success, it's definitely this dynamic duo!
