Years in the making
Friends and founders Jodia and Ryan grew up in the notoriously blistered suburb of Mt Druitt. Labelled as one of Sydney’s poorest areas, the boys only realised the effects once they left. After navigating through the fashion industry independently for over 20 years, collectively working with some of Australia’s most iconic brands, they understood that growing up where they did gave them a broader cultural perspective of Sydney over their counterparts.
Romantics started as a collection of made to order apparel inspired by the trans-seasonal climate and the effects it has with living in Sydney. They have since grown experimenting with products from various disciplines with an aim to blur the lines between the culture that raised them and the country they live in.
The term Australian Made means more to them then the location of their factory, it reflects the people who bring their ideas to life.
