Romance was Born: Romance Was Born and Marvel have unveiled “Berserkergang!,” a new Spring/Summer 2012-13 fashion collection that officially opened Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012. Inspired by the power of color and the pop appeal of Marvel Comics and their iconic Super Heroes, the designers were attracted to the graphic artistry of Marvel’s creators, in particular the legendary Jack Kirby. Kirby’s unique rendering technique, dubbed “Kirby dots,” creates a cinematic style of motion where the characters appear to leap, fly and battle across the page, and this style can be seen throughout the fashion line.
