Namaste

Spring Summer 2008

Namaste! …Meaning, “I salute the divine qualities in you”.

Journey with Romance Was Born extreme backpacker style, to a remote part of the world; in a fictitious land where two borders meet and the mountains kiss the sky… Witness the beauty of a traditional wedding ceremony joining two neighbouring hilltop tribes in the spectacular exchange of customary rites. Like the balance between yin and yang this union of opposites will restore harmony between the tribal elders. Join the villagers as they perform an Ancient ritual - the sacrificial slaying of a goat followed by a three-day feast. Let the wedding festival begin!

Romance Was Born create a new symbology with bold yardage prints featuring the tribal icons of the hilltop tribes. Namaste is a celebration of ethnic craft, fuelled by clashing textures and colours adorned with the ornament of the villagers skill – beading, embroidery and plaited fringing feature as intricate handmade detailing throughout. There will be a lick of Kathryn Del Barton printed velvet and plenty of beautiful knits and some pom-pom action to boot. Romance Was Born break down the Great Wall with universal peace, love and harmony.
