Larger than life, utterly original and mind-glowingly beautiful, the creativity of Australia's quietly achieving, quirky but supremely talented fashion duo is an honour to behold. Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales believe in fashion as fantasy and create exquisite clothing that makes us all dare to dream.

Over the past eighteen years, Romance Was Born has been shown in Paris; acquired by national institutions, including the Powerhouse Museum and the National Gallery of Victoria; and worn by the likes of Cate Blanchett, Beyonce, Sia and Daphne Guinness. More importantly, Romance Was Born has contributed to the evolution of Australia's cultural identity through their exploration of themes and their lavish, immersive runway shows.

Romance Was Born bridges the boundaries of fashion, art and theatre with a magical formula that combines culture, colour, humour and handwork to spectacular effect.
