Giulia Formato | On 23, Mar 2015
Australian fashion designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales inspire through their whimsical and magical journey of Romance. Their exhibition, now being displayed at the National Galley of Victoria, is called “Romance was Born”.
Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales met whilst studying fashion design and launched their Sydney based label. The two creative minds of Anna and Luke, work cohesively together to bring Melbourians both new and classic modes of fashion resulting in playful elegance.
Established in 2005, the elaborate garments that are incorporated within the exhibition are embossed with lace trim, sequins, hand-crocheted baubles and numerous embellishments.
Designed for children, the exhibition, seeks to entertain children with dazzling rays of colours, memories of the Australian bush and image tales.
The Sydney based fashion designers, have collaboratedÂ with artists and designers that explore romance and the essence of country Australia.
Three separate rooms encapsulate the exhibition, each representing a unique tale of Australian culture. The Tomb Room commences the exhibition, it is decorated with sequinned cloaks and colourful wigs to tell the spooky tales of ancient Egypt.
The Bush Room, is decoratedÂ with koalas and kangaroos and green and gold light installations. The rainbow room is a sensation for the eyes, with all the colours of the rainbow dancing across the walls as they depict Anna and Lukes favourite childhood toys and memories.
The exhibition is fun for the whole family and can be culturally and artistically appreciated by all ages.
