Designers: KATE ROHDE/ROMANCE WAS BORN

13 Dec
A few weeks ago, I was sitting for an artist/photographer friend of mine, and as he snapped away he was telling me about how he has been recently coveting the work of Kate Rohde. The way he described it was “like crazy colourful neon animals and crystals and flowers and stuff, in like,  a terrarium,” which, as it turns out, is not far off Rohde’s own description of her work as “a natural history museum on acid”. Of course I thought that sounded RIGHT UP MY ALLEY and immediately raced home to google-stalk her. In the process, I realised that  SHE was the girl who did that amazing collab with Romance Was Born for their Renaissance Dinosaur collection. Yes, perhaps that little tidbit is a bit Renaissance Dinosaur itself as far as fash news is concerned, but the point is that KATE ROHDE IS AMAZING, and you should totally check out her more recent crazy colourful neon animals and crystals and flowers and stuff. Along similar lines, Romance Was Born is also rather fabulous, and fortuitously their S/S 11 Collection ‘The Oracle’  has just got on sale all over the shop(s). Get your hands on it at The Grand Social NOW.
