Romance Was Born’s Express Yourself

DSC01671
Sydney fashion designers Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett of Romance Was Born have been commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria to curate an art exhibition with a twist: it’s meant for children. But may I say there is SO much joy to be found in the Romance Was Born world of sequins and glitter by a proper grown-up adults sans progeny.

Luke explains, “It’s been a magical journey for us and the art exhibition is inspired by our childhood memories growing up in regional Australia, also our collections, and our many collaborations with  contemporary artists and other designers.” Anna says the duo have applied a “more is more ethos” to interactive, digital, Australiana, collage, sculpture, fashion, costume and memorabilia displays.

Don’t overlook this wonderful free installation if you are visiting the Jean Paul Gaultier across the hall (the designer himself gave it the seal of approval, “it’s fantastic!”) Express Yourself is on now at the NGV until March 2015.
