Pipe Cleaners & Crochet




Photos: Romancewasborn

Romance was born, oh indeed it was my love for design due Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales goes way back and today I've decided to re live the very moment I developed an ridiculous fashion obsession with Romancewasborn.My fascination began about a year and a bit ago? When living in a messy and disgusting student house,via a friend of another friend who upped and moved away from Sydney after a short term at Sydney technical school... the ex Sydney student made me aware of Austrailian fashion design and explained to me about these two creative students named Anna and Luke. ..Need I continue this story, since that insightful encounter I've followed (with great difficulty too, aah so pleased they now have a webby) the growth and impact of Romancewasborn ,in a ever so slightly compulsive manor! In the process my love for them has just grown and grown...

Romancewasborn seem to have an almost care free approach towards fashion design, not taking any aspect too seriously refusing to conform and in the process throwing in everything except the kitchen sink and adding a whole lot of avant-garde into the eccentric mix into their collection's. Such as flamboyant and exotic high waisted silk, velvet skirts with lashings of beads and sequins. Lets not forget the chunky knitted dresses featuring knitted and crochet bumble bees, little ladybirds, comical giant ducks, goggle eyes, miniature pompom's and erm...hundreds of multi coloured pipe cleaner's, as you do. Long live the romance I say!

Wow they're clothes are very unique and playful. The outfits they put together in the lookbooks might be a little much for me but as individual pieces I would totally rock their dresses out at night.
