Romance Was Born
If you know me then you know the love i have for beautiful dresses...
(vintage chiffon dreamboats, kitschy handmade party dresses covered in kiss prints, floorlength black mourning gowns, velvet Audrey Horne attire, pastel cotton day dresses, see through silk slips, lace trimmed sleeves, rhinestone buttoned wriggle dresses...and the list goes on...)
so i was over the moon when recently commissioned to create a set of five illustrations for thevine.com.au , to coincide with Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Luckily having been able to attend a small selection of shows, inspiration was already abundant.
First up is Romance Was Born, one of Australia's most unique fashion labels, manned by Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett. Their latest collection is a zany acid tinted romp through prehistoric jungles. (i spy a volcano dress!) The gem clustered, paint splattered, triceratops inspired collection certainly is a revelation for the wardrobe and i'm very much a fan.
p.s. Each thursday during the month of june, thevine.com.au will reveal a new fashion week illustration of mine.
keep your eyes peeled!
p.p.p.s. in other news, i completely forgot to mention that my paintings featured in the Disband exhibition are now available for sale HERE at leeloo.com.au.
