Autumn/winter covers are by far the best for me, so it is nice that even though all our UK and US covers are giving us spring and summer looks, I still have Australia to keep me happy. This is one of the best covers of the year so far, the gorgeous Cate Blanchett looks amazing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia May 2011 cover.
Looking elegant, Cate is wearing a breath-taking embroidered black lace dress adorned with floral appliqués, from Australian label Romance Was Born. I love how classy this cover is, with the black and white picture paired with an understated gold typeface – very chic!
But what I love most is that this cover has introduced me to Australian label Romance Was Born, which I have to admit I have never come across before. The Aussie brand, created by design duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, is a gorgeous line of statement pieces, whether it is floor-skimming black lace gown’s like this, or a mini dress adorned with flower appliques or body-con dress in striking prints, this label really has something special. I have been flicking through their past collections on their site and I am a fan, I also love that this a brand with integrity as from design to production, everything is done entirely in Australia. There aren’t many labels that can say that.
One thing for sure, I will be paying more attention to Australia’s Fashion Week in future!!!
