Romance Was Born: A Love Story with Fashion
Romance was Born: A Love Story with Fashion is a lavishly illustrated story of one of the most successful Australian fashion houses of the last 15 years. Romance Was Born collections are larger than life, iconic and iconoclastic, and this gorgeous book is a celebration of this unique Australian vision, created by two young designers who declined an internship with Galliano at Dior to 'do their own thing'.
The designs of Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales have included collaborations with celebrated Australian designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson and contemporary artists including NELL, Kate Rhode, Patrick Doherty and Del Kathryn Barton. They have also worked with Marvel and Lego, their creations have been worn by Cate Banchett, Beyonce, Cyndi Lauper and Daphne Guinness, and are included in collections at the NGV and The Powerhouse.24cm x 19cm
