Talk about an ephemeral love affair.

Fashion Journal

Lovers of Romance Was Born (so pretty much everyone), rejoice. As of last Friday, the label is holding a residency in Melbourne.

For 10 days only, the Verner store in Mitchell House will be playing home to the label's nostalgic AW15 collection Bush Magic, as showcased at VAMFF.

The residency kicked off on Friday with a launch party to celebrate, allowing collective cheers to reverberate in one joyful room. The launch also saw an exhibition of photographs by Samuel Hodge for Romance Was Born, which will remain for the duration of the residency.

Those keen to check it out should hold their breath, as the space is closed on Sundays (wah). It will however reopen tomorrow, until it shuts doors Monday March 30. Talk about an ephemeral love affair.

Verner store- Level 1, Mitchell House
358 Lonsdale St Melbourne
