COTTON ON FOR FREO ATWELL ARCADE

Posted in city of fremantle, clothes, fashion, retail by freoview on November 19, 2016

It looks like Cotton On might move into the Atwell Arcade in the Fremantle High Street mall before Christmas, and what a positive difference that would make to the drab shopping street.

While there will always be room for improvement and the redevelopment does have it critics I believe it has been a good compromise. The initial proposal was for a five-storey building which I vehemently opposed on behalf of the Fremantle Society.

The four-storey building is not overpowering in that location and it angles away from High Street, and the panels create welcome softness to the concrete. I personally quite like the way it looks from Cantonment Street.

FREO’S LOVE IN TOKYO FASHION SHOP CLOSES

Posted in fashion, fremantle, retail by freoview on August 27, 2015

I am really sad that the LOVE IN TOKYO fashion shop in Fremantle’s High Street will be closing, as Sheree and John Dornan are really nice people. I have always liked having a look at the displays in the windows and admiring the very feminine and elegant designs by Sheree.

Here is what they posted on Facebook:

CHANGING TIMES
In April 2003 we opened our flagship Love in Tokyo retail store in the beautiful west end of High Street Fremantle. The time has come for us to change our business structure and take a step back from running a 7 day a week retail business, so we will be moving on from our current location soon.
We truly thank you all for your support over the years. The Love in Tokyo concept will continue via an online store and pop ups. We would love to see you before we leave so please call by to say hello.
John and I will be creating an exciting new venture post Love in Tokyo based in the Fremantle area where we can both focus our time on other varied creative projects, and design collaborations. I will also still continue designing my garments under the Sheree Dornan label.
Please email us at loveintokyostore@gmail.com with your email address if you would like to receive our e newsletters.

Sheree and John

PERTH FASHION FESTIVAL AT BATHERS BEACH

Posted in events, fashion, fremantle by freoview on July 19, 2015

It looks like Fremantle will have a big Perth Fashion Festival event at Bathers Beach on November 29 this year. The proposal is on the agenda of this Wednesday’s Strategic Planning and Services Committee and would see the boardwalk and area near it blocked off from the general public all of that Sunday, with the boardwalk being used as the catwalk for the models to show the latest local fashion designs.

The Bathers Beach House operators would extend the licensed area and become part of the ticketed event that no doubt would bring glamour and socialites to our inner city beach.

Another big DJ music event at Leighton Beach is also up for Council approval on Wednesday, so Council needs to be careful not to overdo it and make the same mistakes with our beaches as it has done with the overused and struggling Esplanade. Public open spaces are there for all to enjoy and there should only be a few events a year that restrict access for the general public.

And no bean bags on the beaches please. Last year thousands of small balls were polluting Leighton after a music event, so bean bags should be banned as part of the City of Fremantle approval for such events.

I am looking forward to another great summer, the Bathers Beach Sunset Food Markets and all the festivals, but let’s spread them out so that not only inner city people are inconvenienced by events.
