ROMANCE WAS BORN IS THE MOST EXCITING FASHION BRAND YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF

Categories:Fashion

When the fashion industry talks about centers for exciting new talent, it's all about the avant-garde designers of London or the young up-starts of New York City. Perhaps that's how Australian label Romance Was Born has been flying under the radar for 10 years now, quietly producing and showing some of the industry's most forward-thinking collections in Sydney, a pricey 20-plus hour flight away from any fashion capital. 

All that is about to change. After a solid few seasons selling through Moda Operandi, Romance Was Born has been approached by Saks Fifth Avenue to sell on the retailer's new contemporary floor. And thanks to local buzz, their resort 2017 presentation was the one everyone in Sydney said was a must-see. Inspired by Liberace and set in an incredible private home on the water, the high-flash of the sequin-and-feather filled collection had everyone buzzing, as did the plenty of nod-and-wink styles (like a smoking jacket with sequined cigarettes and a silk cocktail dress with a literal cocktail print).

It's been a long time coming. Designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales met the old fashioned way — at fashion school (Sydney Institute of Technology), where they found a shared aesthetic while collaborating on projects. They entered the ITS#Four competition, an early iteration of the International Talent Support, and were offered internships with John Galliano. Not yet ready for a move to Europe, Plunkett and Sales returned home to Australia and started Romance Was Born in 2005.

From there, the brand has always grown organically, focusing more on slow-and-steady pacing and connection building over flash-in-the-pan buzz. "We didn't have the infrastructure to grow and finance," Plunkett explains. "We're the owners of the business and we're really involved, so we don't just sit around drawing. There's running the business, and making sure everything gets done on time, so it's a bit challenging, but that's why we're hoping to grow and get more people working with us."

Ten years on, though, the timing is finally right to pursue international markets. There's the Saks deal, which will bring them stateside in the next month (New York buyers and editors, make your appointments now), and goals of showing in Paris one day. ("I think Paris is where people might understand us best," Plunkett says. "You think of America and it's really clean and minimal.")

"We have our people here, and we're really comfortable with how it works, and it's about finding those people [abroad]," Plunkett says. "We're almost starting again as well, because we've grown up with the brand, and now we're totally different and it's the next chapter. We're going to do some rebranding, because it's been 10 years. It's just a natural progression, things change and you have to move on."

Of course, that doesn't mean they'll be abandoning the Australian fashion industry, which has supported them from the start; fellow Aussie designer Toni Maticevski introduced the duo to Moda Operandi, and the newly formed Australian Fashion Chamber helped support the brand's first showrooms abroad. "It has opened the rest of the world up — it sounds fishy, but it's true," Plunkett says of the AFC. "We just didn't have the opportunity or the contacts. It's small as well, so you have to look after each other."

They've got the celebrity support in place already too, counting fashion cool girls like Daphne Guinness, Miley Cyrus and Grimes amongst their clientele. In another show of Aussie solidarity, Cate Blanchett wore a dress of theirs for an appearance at the Sydney Theatre Company. While they understand the importance of red carpet dressing ("I think that's the hugest honor, when someone you look up to gets what you do and wants to go there as well," Plunkett says), they're not interested unless it aligns with the message of the brand. 

"I think the idea of celebrities wearing our stuff is not cool unless you're into the person," Sales says. (Dream client Bjork will be in town soon, though, and Plunkett and Sales already know which dress they would put her in — a multicolored feather number from the resort runway.)

"[We're about] the idea of wonderment and beauty," Plunkett says. "We just try and create stories, create emotion. We've always said we want the customer to want it and wear it because they're emotionally connected to it, not just to be cool or be sexy, those things that magazines tell people to do."

Whatever the future holds for Romance Was Born, it's clear the brand has already made its mark at home. "From the beginning we've been collected by art institutions in Australia, and I think that's really, really exciting," Plunkett says. "That's how we've discovered things, and to think we might be the next generation of creative force — that's pretty cool."

We're betting the rest of the world will catch up soon. See Romance Was Born's full Resort 2017 collection below.

Main Differences Between Valentino Shoes Replicas And Authentic Valentino Rockstud Pumps

Categories:Designer Shoes

I noticed that the studded Valentino shoes replicas from the Rockstud collection are still some of the most sought-after replica shoes, especially in beige, pink, black and red. If you’re a fan of the style as well, check out this comparison between a pair of Valentino Rockstud pumps replica and an authentic

Valentino Shoes Replicas vs Authentic Rockstud Pumps

Some of the differences highlighted in this review are actually the most common differences between fake Valentino Rockstud pumps and real ones, so it’s better to know them before you buy!

These Valentino shoes replicas were bought from a seller that doesn’t even have a Facebook or Instagram account, which is something I wouldn’t normally recommend to anyone reading this post. My friend was lucky because she actually received what she paid for and didn’t get scammed but if she wanted to return them, she couldn’t do it. So it’s too risky if you ask me, unless it’s a seller you’ve bought from before and know for sure that is trustworthy.

Here is the review my friend sent. As I said, she pointed out the flaws of these Valentino Rockstud replica pumps perfectly, so pay attention!

“Hi Eva

I hope you are doing well

Last week I received these Valentino rockstud in red. I’d like you to take a look and give your option. It cost $188 I think the shoes was over priced comparing to what I have seen but since I already have 3 authentic paid and I really love them I just decided to buy any way.

Since 2014 I have been receiving emails with replicas pictures and new arrivals from a guy named Chen from China. I don’t know if someone referred me or he found my info on Internet.

Any way 2 weeks ago I decided to take a look on the images and I contacted him so we started chatting in what’s app. He doesn’t have Instagram /Facebook or online store. The first communication is thru emails then on what’s app. I took the risk and ended up ordering. He claimed to only sell the best quality it seems like he is sort of personal shopper and buys from different factories because he offer different qualities and prices.

Here is His contact info: prosperchen22222222222@hotmail He only accepts Western Union and arrived in 5 days.

After reading your blog I realized I shouldn’t have trust on this transaction but I am glad I received the bodies.

Valentino Shoes Replicas Review

They don’t carry my size so he said it was going to be customized…. I wear size 9 in US / 40 Europe but for pointy shoes I usually go half or one size up. So I request size 40 but I think it should be 41. It’s a little bit smaller than my foot. It seems good quality but taking a close look and comparing to the authentic one I saw many differences. The shoes are beautiful and I think could pass as legit if wasn’t for the huge mistake of the missing stud on the vertical strap where the horizontal ones connect around the ankle.

PS: As you know there are few accounts on Instagram selling best high quality bags jewelry and shoes… Take a look on this @luxuryhandbasss what do you think about the overall quality?
She seems to be a good seller. She sends detailed images and price after been contact in what app. She post pictures of the delivery and costumer feedback”

I personally never buy replica bags or shoes off Instagram because of the reasons I already mentioned. But has any of you girls ever bought anything from this Instagram seller my friend mentioned? I’d really like to know if she really offers good quality or not!

Shopping for designer knockoff shoes is even more complicated than buying replica handbags. Not just because there are less replica sites for shoes but also because as a general rule they look less authentic than high quality replica bags. So if you’re in the market for Valentino shoes replicas or any other designer shoes replicas, try not to get really disappointed if they’re not as good as you expected…because not even high quality designer shoes are perfect!

If you want to buy replica shoes it’s probably better to do exactly what my friend mentioned in her review: go for half or one size up. Why? Because replica shoe sizes don’t usually run true to standard sizes. So for example if your standard shoe size is 37, then you should probably order a size 38. It’s important to measure your feet before actually ordering the shoes and choose them according to these measures rather than based on your regular shoe size.

This is why it’s so important to choose either a replica site that has a clear shoe size graph and offers detailed information on how to pick the right shoe size for you or an experience seller that will know which size to recommend depending on your standard shoe size. Ordering the incorrect shoe size can be too much of a hassle so it’s better to buy replica shoes online carefully to avoid all that.

After comparing the Valentino shoes replicas with the original Rockstud pumps, what’s your verdict? Would you wear them or not?

Hermes has made the world’s most beautiful handbags like the famous Birkin and Kelly. But beautiful and functional are two different things. And when the two are combined, you get something very special – the Hermes Mini Halzan Bag.

Four bags in one – you can transform the Hermes Mini Halzan Bag in four different kinds of bag; an evening clutch, a long shopping tote, a cross body bag or a shoulder bag. So which one do you prefer today?

There is no bag as flexible as the Mini Halzan Bag and any form is fashionable and stunning. The front is made with a buckle, so adjust it to your comfort.

But what’s more importantly are the color and overall design. Single color is not only simple, but you can wear it at work, during the weekends or on holiday (in almost every occasions). Simplicity means that the bag can adjust to your outfit.

Final note.

We’ve presented the Hermes Halzan Medium Bag not long ago. The Mini version is new and we really like the smaller size of it.
