A slice of Australiana in Paris. Romance Was Born debuted for the first time at Paris Fashion Week, hosting its Step Into Paradise ‘kinda couture’ runway collection at a 125-year-old Parisian gymnasium. Inspired by the works of Chinese-Australian artist Jenny Kee (who attended the show), the collection captured the label’s quintessential whimsy through neon-coloured beading, feathered fringing and delicate embroidery, and paid homage to the brand’s Antipodean roots in references to the Great Barrier Reef and Dorothea McKellar’s iconic poem, My Country. Here, Contributing Editor Kitty Callaghan offers a behind the scenes glimpse into the couture collection.
