Romance Was Born Grand Finale | VAMFF 2015

May Gibbs’ gumnut babies may seem like unlikely muses. Yet against a backdrop of the late authoress’ voice and the comforting scent of Eucalyptus leaves, Romance Was Born created magic. ‘Bush Magic’ is their latest collection which puts the spotlight on Australiana via magpie feather prints, stunning wattle blooms and native storybook motifs, and even the odd Akubra for RWB hat. Ranging from whimsical to sporty to couture-worthy, the collection was right at home amid dancers costumed in original pieces from the 1980’s Snugglepot and Cuddlepie ballet. And I was transported right back to my childhood on a wave of uniquely Australian nostalgia.
