“Pearl’s Dream” Concept Store
“The intersection” 2A Glenmore Road, Paddington
26th November 2009 – 31st January 2010
Bursting with inspiration, Anna & Luke from Romance was Born, have just opened their “Pearls Dream” concept store, celebrating their current collection and its collaborators – this space encapsulates the total Romance aesthetic! Pearls Dream continues on from the “Doilies and Pearls, Oysters and Shells” SS0910 collection. It is a concept store which celebrates the collection and its collaborators.
“We feel so lucky to work with the people we do and Pearl’s Dream encapsulates our full Romance aesthetic. Its about creating our world for the outside world to experience”. Romance Was Born
“Doilies and Pearls, Oysters and Shells” features collaborative works by two Australian artists, Patrick Doherty and Indigenious shell worker Esme Timbery, and also jewellery by Romance Was Born’s accessories designer Paul Bonomelli.
Pearl’s Dream is Romance Was Born’s tribute to the stylish elegance of Grandmas and the olden days whilst exploring their fascination with the sea; that crystalline underwater world where mermaids are the keepers of its mysterious watery secrets. Romance Was Born open up nanna’s glory box worn by the tides of time to reveal long forgotten treasures – glorious old jewels, budgies in a cage, 4711, a fine bone china tea set with a mother-of-pearl glaze, delicately aged lace doilies and other assorted goodies from a bygone era.
