'Romance Was Born', an Australian fashion label set up six years ago by designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, will unveil a new collection based on characters of Marvel Comics at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA), scheduled to be held from April 30 to May 4, 2012.

For the new collection, the fashion label has collaborated with Marvel Comics, which has given the designers permission to use costumes of all of its trademarked characters, including Spider Man, Captain America and The Uncanny X-Men, which would form an inspiration for their new creations.

Romance Was Born (RWB), known for its colourful and theatrical designs, has presented creations inspired by Renaissance dinosaurs, mermaids and the Girl Guides at the past editions of the Australian Fashion Week.

The superhero characters from Marvel Comics would be starting point for the new collection, Ms Plunkett said. She added that the designer duo is inspired by the clothing worn by comic characters.

The fans of RWB include the likes of popstar Madonna, Deborah Harry, Cindi Lauper and Lily Allen to name a few.

Most recently, Cate Blanchett appointed RWB as costume designers for Edward Gant's “Amazing Feats of Loneliness” at the Sydney Theatre Company, where their playful creations were well-received.
