These outfits were designed by Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett of Australian fashion label Romance Was Born for their summer 2012-2013 collection titled Beserkergang. After they were shown at Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences acquired them as part of its world-class fashion collection.
The creative theming used by Plunkett and Sales in their 2012 show creates both spectacle and a coherent collection narrative.
This collection particularly caught the attention of media and buyers who felt the designers had successfully translated their offbeat creativity into a strong commercial collection.
