An imaginative new project between Romance Was Born and the NGV will have your inner child desperate to come out to play.

Words by

Steph Marks

Have you ever wondered what a world created by the visionaries from Romance Was Born would look like? 

Designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales have been commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria to morph three large gallery spaces into an ancient mythology and storybook inspired utopia; and the outcome, we are certain, will be nothing short of extraordinary.

This beautifully imaginative project is a part of the NGV’s children’s program and will encourage visitors to express themselves creatively through fashion, art and vibrant imagery while delving into the distinct Romance Was Born aesthetic. 

This free one-of-a-kind exhibition runs from October 17th 2014 until March 25th 2015.
