Romance Was Born

Romance Was Born is a tour de force of contemporary Australian fashion. Fusing together their unique storytelling vision and design prowess, the internationally renowned duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales met while completing their degree in fashion design and in 2005 and established the inimitable label Romance Was Born.

Known for their ability to transform any theme or inspiration into a glimmering, chimerical paradise full of wonderment, Romance Was Born creates clothes that are more than just a sum of their parts – they create immersive cultural experiences that provoke an emotional response. As Cate Blanchett has professed to Harper’s BAZAAR Australia, “I love Romance Was Born because they have a great anarchic freedom.”

The pair has garnered respect for their extravagant and theatrical runway shows that bring to life the quintessence of the Romance Was Born vision. Attracting women who delight in expressing their individuality, those that wear their collections include style mavericks Daphne Guinness, Rose Byrne, Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert, Catherine Martin, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry, MIA, Natasha Khan, Grimes and Miley Cyrus. Each creation originates in a dreamscape of fantasy and vibrant imagery that can only be Romance Was Born.
