It’s Australian Fashion Week, and designers Romance Was Born have kicked it off with a superheroic line up of outfits. The collection was sponsored by Marvel, and the glamorous dresses glitter with comic book influences – literally in some cases. The line mixes comics with high fashion and includes a variety of textures and patterns reminiscent of your favorite heroes—including the Avengers.
You’ll spot Jack Kirby’s Kirby Krackle as a dress, and you can see the imprint of his creations across the designs (hopefully the Kirby family is having more luck getting credit for these designs than they are for certain characters appearing in certain blockbuster movies). These bold looks are definitely too much for everyday, but they serve as a reminder that comics can indeed be very chic.
See more comic book-esque designs after the break.
