Girls Against Boys

The Yen Young Women of the Year Awards were created to acknowledge and support the achievements of women 35 years and under who are doing amazing things across various fields – including business, fashion, sport, music and the community, among others.

The gracious Anna Plunkett from Romance Was Born accepted the award in the fashion category. All incredible in their own right, Therese Rawsthorne and Tina Kalivas were the other nominees.

Over the road on the same night was the GQ Men of the Year awards of which Ben Pollitt of Friedrich Gray was nominated for the breakthrough artist category.

It was suggested by a particularly clever friend of Romance Was Born that the women and men of the awards meet at the end of the night and then it would be just like a prom. We made it happen and were particularly impressed with the staff at the Ivy who let us take over a substantial area of their cloakroom to attend the most surreal (pool) party since 'The Party.'
