Romance Was Born Resort 2018 Collection

The dynamic designer duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales presented an out-of-this-world 2018 Resort collection. Romance Was Born turned out to be the perfect ending for this year’s Fashion Week in Australia. Since the debut in 2005, Romance was Born has risen into one of the most popular Australian fashion houses.

The two designers collaborated with the Australian artist and filmmaker Del Kathryn Barton, who is a two-time Archibald winner. This is not the first time that Romance Was Born has collaborated with Kathryn. She took care of the wonderful drawings printed on the fairytale-like dresses. The body paintings on the models were also her artwork. The two designers accented that they wanted to translate Barton’s work into their designs. This year’s “Electro Orchid” is definitely meant for the eccentric ones.

The show started almost an hour later than scheduled because many visitors were trying to make their way to the crowded venue. Spectators felt like they were in a surreal world where chaos met unicorns. The collection was very colorful with a great dose of eccentricity. There were a lot of patterns, polka dots, glitter and disco moments. Among the most spectacular pieces was the fringe rainbow dress. If you want to steal the show this is probably the best choice for you.

The collection includes a lot of half-nude pieces made of sheer materials that give a very sensual and seductive note. The designs are predominantly in bright colors. A lot of lace, a lot of sequins, a lot of everything. Some of the dresses were wild and youthful, while others were settled and sophisticated. The makeup and hair just added to the disco queen moment of the show. The general conclusion of the amazed visitors was that Romance Was Born combined the impossible and created a collection pleasant to the eye.

Probably the most unexpected moment of the night were the two naked models with hand painted words on their bodies. One of them had words painted in black, from one of Kathryn’s paintings. The other one carried the words “Electro Orchid” in red.

“It’s not about shocking people or anything like that,” Anna said of the nude models. “The girls, we always imagine them coming out of Del’s work, so it’s about trying to relate the artwork back to the women.”
