RAFW SS 09/10 - Romance Was Born

Finally got a chance to pore through the Rosemount Australian Fashion Week runway shows presented. And by god, wasn't I taken by the Romance Was Born show!

I adore all things Romance Was Born...daring to go where other Australian designers have not yet dared to, this showing was all about fun, ferocity and extravagance in the name of fashion. AND I loved every single part of it. As quoted in the press release on the website, Romance Was Born collections are "irrevent and fun loving, fabric and colour combinations inspire their playful outfits where sparkle, texture and bold prints jostle together in a harmonious jamboree of style".

Design team Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales are clearly brilliant at what they do, and their love for it is clear in their design element. Adore Romance Was Born to bits and will definitely have to indulge in select piece(s) from the collection :)

Speaking of said collection:

I love too the backstage pictures, detailing those insanely fantastic white material eyebrow deco pieces and the LVesque-tribal slash burlesque inspired heels AND the extravagantly beautiful makeup:

Wow, I love how fun and OTT these pieces are! Definitely looks like a lot of fun. Sometimes it does get dull when designers take fashion way too seriously.
