Regional Australia

Spring Summer 2006

Inspired by all things country, Romance Was Born draw upon childhoods spent in small-town Australia. The crunch of a chocolate crackle, the craw of magpie and the softness of an old flannelette shirt are triggers for many a fond memory of growing up in the bush and the melting pot of ideas behind their Spring/Summer ‘06/07 collection Regional Australia. Based around the clichés of what it means to be Australian, the range features explosive components of metallics, printed silks, hand crocheted wool and customised chiffons. A special feature of “Outback Romance” is Romance Was Born’s first collaboration with acclaimed Australian artist Del Kathryn Barton. This pairing sees the formation of the jaw-dropping garments in Barton’s exclusive digital ‘eye’ print and the ‘magic’ print.
