Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) has been taking place over the past few days and while my interest in the event has waned over the years, the one thing that always excites me is seeing what the creative duo behind Romance Was Born gets up to. This year was no different, with Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett delivering another visually riotous show. If my reaction to seeing the collection through a computer screen was anything to go by, I can only imagine what it must have been like to experience it in person. The collection, called ‘Whispering Angel’, was inspired by Liberace and features plenty of appropriately showy garments. While the Liberace references are clear to see (hello sheet music prints and keyboard fringed dresses), I’m also inclined to describe this collection as Phryne Fisher meets The Capitol. Feast your eyes on more images of excess after the cut.
