We renovate and style our homes much the same as we renovate and style our wardrobes, so it's no real surprise to see this innovative - and very cool - collaboration
Dulux and talented fashion duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales of Romance Was Born and Lisa Gorman of Gorman, come together in the return of the United by Style project seeing Australian design teams collaborating to showcase the latest in fashion and interior trends.
The bold prints of Romance was Born and Gorman are set to appear on the runways at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival this March.
Dulux will draw from the designer’s latest 2014 Autumn Winter collections. The leading interior design team will create room designs that demonstrate inspiring and trend-setting techniques to take fashion colours straight from the runway into the home, under the direction of Dulux Stylist, Bree Leech.
Lisa Gorman is very excited to work alongside Dulux, expressing her love of colour and design from fashion to the home.
“My obsession with colour is most easily explained by the fact that my favourite book is my textile Pantone swatch book. It's a bit like a massive Dulux paint swatch chart really, one glorious endless rainbow. I'm big on colour in the home. It's the layering and balancing of texture, print, colour and scale that gives me joy... I don't do neutral very well,” says Gorman.
The Romance Was Born team looks forward to expanding their avenues of design through this significant collaboration.
“We put a lot of thought into who we align ourselves with and in a time of growth for us, it’s great to be able to flex our creative muscle with a project such as this and look to new and exciting opportunities to move into other avenues of design,” says Anna Plunkett.
The Festival’s Opening Event presented by Vogue Australia and David Jones on March 17 will showcase Autumn Winter looks from Romance Was Born, alongside other celebrated designers from the David Jones fashion family.
Gorman is announced to feature on the Festival’s Premium Runway 3 on March 19, presented by Frankie.
