Ro­mance Was Born cel­e­brates more than 10 years of drawing on muses and friends.

DEL KATHYRN BARTON

In a beau­ti­ful col­li­sion of two cre­ative forces, artist and for­ever-ally Del Kathryn Barton has con­tin­u­ally col­lab­o­rated with the la­bel, af­ter work­ing on the duo’s first three col­lec­tions. Anna Plun­kett and Luke Sales: “Del! We know you love fash­ion as much as we do. What is it about cloth­ing and style that you en­joy so much?” DKB: “Dar­lings! Where to be­gin? Fash­ion as big time colour ob­ses­sion! I am pas­sion­ate about the his­tory, artistry, in­no­va­tion and sheer sexy po­ten­tial of di­verse fab­rics. I be­lieve fash­ion through­out the ages re­flects some of the most vi­brant, ex­treme, gor­geous man­i­fes­ta­tions of hu­man ex­pres­sion and ex­pe­ri­ence. I love the re­al­i­sa­tion and jour­ney of get­ting dressed as a bub­bling up of all peo­ple’s cre­ative selves; one’s ca­pac­ity to de­sign and cu­rate the sur­face of one’s body as we pass through life. Fash­ion as se­ri­ous play­time! Fash­ion as sexy times! Fash­ion as ar­mour! Fash­ion as sheer awe­some­ness! Just like you beau­ties.”
