One of the things I love about the Australian fashion weeks…they are always in front – they show now their spring/summer 12-13…and they happen in the same moment when us here in Europe are starting our summers.  I was swimming yesterday for the first time so seeing these images from Day 1 of the MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK in Sydney are happily keeping me into the summer mood.

Let us start with this beautiful backstage image of the ROMANCE WAS BORN show. Orange wigs – strong colorful make up and ASOS NAIL ROCK on the model and the make  up artist … i love her little music note tatoo…

Thick black glued eye brows and colorful garments move the girls into a cartoon world.

“ROMANCE WAS BORN have an amazing capacity for turning out exquisite clothes that go beyond trends and are recognizable worldwide.”

“Like creative Powerbirds they assemble a fashion wonderland, drawing together all that is beautiful with their stunning embellished style.”

Garish comic book colours and designs were all the rage, in a show produced in partnership with Marvel Comics.

Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales are the heads behind ROMANCE WAS BORN.

…and here they are…happy and smileeeee as always…
