Comic Book meets Pop Art meets Fashion.

The first we really noticed this trend here in Australia was when Romance was Born opened up Fashion week in 2012 with their superhero styled comic book collection.

They absolutely, with no question brought their very own comic book to life and took costume dress up for this theme to a whole new ready-to-wear level.


Since then I have started to notice more “pops” of this trend come about through even bigger designers and even hit the shelves in department stores.

And somehow (through my lovely job) managed to get my hands on a very special Pop art Tube Skirt From Top Shop. (below)


This beautiful comic Art inspired Skirt is absolutely GORGEOUS and such a fun piece to have.

It’s super trend driven and all the pops of Red and Yellow colour make it that much easier to Style.

The Perfect Colour Palette for this trend is obviously Black and white with a combination of Red, Yellow and Blue.

Accessories that would go perfect with this trend are high shine bags and belts and Gold Coloured jewellery.

Primary Coloured Shoes, Red, Blue and Yellow would also go well with this trend.

Although this skirt is not available on Top shops Website.

There are a number of other Comic/Pop Art inspired pieces Still available. (below)

Be Quick to purchase as they may not last very long.

To look at some other Designers who have also “WOW’d” US !


3.1 Phillip Lim, Pre-Fall 2012 Collection.

I know its Pre-fall 2012 but I absolutely love it AND it’s TOTALY RELEVANT.

"Everyone wants garments to be superheroes” said Designer Phillip Lim.

In fact, some would even agree that many of his pieces were constructed from such great high-tech fabrics with remarkable design functionality , that would be enough to actually and incredibly save you from any wardrobe strife you’d be in.

Super POWERS !


I love how minimal the core pieces in this collection are.

So, before I go -  A little secret between you and  I – there is more to come of this trend in Summer 2013 in Australia.

So definitely keep your eyes out at the major department stores.


Much Love,

Romance was Born | The comic Book comes to life !

I think it was late 2010, Mid October when I had the pleasure of working with Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett for a day at there Studio on Oxford Street.

I’ll never forget their cluttered studio – cluttered in a good way of course ! It revealed the source behind their inspirations and creativity. It was filled with many beautiful trims, creatively embellished  props and pieces, inspirational images, colourful fabrics and collections. Without having studied them intensely, I could already see what talents they both had !

I began to fall in love with them more and more. The more I saw their logo, their designs, their runways the more they both inspired me !

During this time of year I’m usually wrapped up in fashion week – assisting designers, stylists as well as dressers backstage, however this year I took a step back and decided to sacrifice what I love doing every year (as I’m sure there are so many more events I can do this at) and focus more on major work.

This morning, as I turned on the television, my fashion fix sprung to a new high !

Not sure if you all know but Mercedes Fashion week has started here in Sydney, Australia and guess who opened the show – yes ROMANCE WAS BORN !

The comic book came to life with Romance was born’s collection !

Superhero styled hair and makeup, graphic prints, pop art, geometric stripes, it was all very 60’s, very fun and I loved every bit of it !

Here’s a few pictures from the show.
