There is no label in the Australian fashion landscape quite like Romance Was Born. Launched in 2005, Romance Was Born is the brainchild of Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett – Sydney-based designers with an affinity for all things whimsical and an unbridled belief that clothes should tell a story.
The Romance Was Born aesthetic is one that transcends trends and seasons; themes and inspirations are transformed from mere concept to stunning wearable reality thanks to a swirling palette of bespoke prints, intricately hand-applied appliques and embroidery, rich sequinned elements and the finest couture-inspired materials. Their symbiosis of artistic collaboration and expression with effortless Australian charm sees each collection produce a thoughtful capsule of beautiful garments that become true wardrobe treasures that you’ll cherish for years to come.
THE ICONIC’s edit of Romance Was Born offers a curation of the brand’s colourful, contemporary designs. Feather-light dresses with bohemian elements and bold motifs are the quickest way to make a statement, while the label’s collection of separates allows you mix and match to your heart’s content. Whether it’s a printed silk blouse, graphic appliqued coat or something entirely different, a piece from Romance Was Born transforms any ensemble into a walking work of art.
