What lessons can be learnt from Romance Was Born exhibition at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2014 | Sydney

With all the glitz and glam and hype from fashion week last week, I must admit I did feel a little underwhelmed with some of the designs. I was hoping the Australian collections pushed boundaries. To be honest, I preferred the runways of One Fine Day that was held earlier in the year at Carriageworks, which had the finest collections of haute couture wedding dress designs. Each piece was a work of art with much detail and thought put into the design and stitching of the dress. Sure, it’s not everyday wear but it was art.

The collection that stood out the most and pushed boundaries was the exhibition put together by designers, Romance Was Born. I interpreted their display as an irony to their name as when you walk in the exhibition at Carriagworks if feels like you have walked into a delusional haunted house of very well dressed dead people - it was like Alice in Wonderland meets The Sixth Sense. Would I wear any of it to work? God no. Would I wear it anywhere? Unlikely, but some of clothes and the way it sits on your body frame I could use an inspiration.

It goes to show that if you want to be remembered and you want to be noticed, then you need to put in that extra effort and have the guts to push boundaries. Think outside the box. This collection was memorable.

I’ll leave you with photos I took of the Romance Was Born exhibition which speak for themselves.
