academy brand

 

A brand new clothing shop will open in Fremantle soon. The Academy Brand will be offering clean and classic men’s and boys clothing from their Market Street shop on the corner of the High Street mall.

The Academy Brand was established in 2007 with a boutique at Bondi Beach and now has several shops in New South Wales and also one in Brisbane.

The brand is very popular here in Australia and New Zealand, so gents go and check it out.

 

tavern

 

While walking down High Street I noticed men putting up the sign at the Orient Hotel for the retrospective change of use to tavern at the Fremantle Beach Backpackers upstairs.

I don’t know if that will mean the end of the hostel or if the tavern will be an addition for the backpackers and in competition with the Orient.

FREMANTLE NEW MODE FASHION FESTIVAL

Posted in city of fremantle, clothes, fashion, Uncategorized by freoview on March 6, 2018

Sustainable fashion enterprise, New Mode Collective (NMC), is running a series of events from March 2nd-11th as part of their inaugural New Mode Fashion Festival (NMFF) in Fremantle.

Eve Maxwell and Acacia Armstrong founded NMC in 2017 as a platform to promote awareness of and access to ethically-produced clothing. So far, their projects have focused on education around supply chain transparency and the environmental impacts for textile production, dyes and everything else that goes into making our clothes. 

As part of NMFF, they are launching The Fitting Room, a pop-up retail space where people can try on sustainable garments usually only available online. You’ll find Australian labels, Yuki Threads, Positive Two, A.BCH, Leo Strange and Skylark, and global labels, Dorsu and Tamay & Me, just to name a few.

The Fitting Room will launch on Friday March 9 at Creatures Nextdoor with an evening of retail, music and an Emerging Designer Runway, showcasing young talent from Perth and Melbourne, who are designing with people and planet in mind. Guests will also be offered the opportunity to have their bodies digitally measured with the brand new Kiyakaya Body Scanner. This software creates a digital avatar of the subject to minimise waste in pattern making, and make customisation and alteration easier. It is the only one of its kind in Australia but NMC and Kiyakaya believe it is the future of garment sizing. The Fitting Room will pop up at Replants on Saturday 10th, alongside a designer clothes swap, and again at Creatures Nextdoor on Sunday 11th.

To preface this event, The Fair Fashion and Ethical Enterprise Conference will be held at 1pm-5pm on March 9, which will unite members of the fashion and the development sectors to discuss what can be done to end human rights and environmental abuses in the garment industry. Keynote speakers include Oxfam Australia’s Paddy Cullen, the brains behind the KIYAKAYA Body Scanner and NMC founder, Acacia Armstrong. NMFF 2018 promises to be dynamic, fun and the first of many as the global movement to clean up the fashion industry continues to grow bigger and louder!

Velvet Sushi

 

Let’s finish Tuesday’s blog posts on a positive note. This is one of the reasons I love Fremantle!

What a stunning window display at the Velvet Sushi fashion boutique in Bannister Street.

If a few more shop owners took pride in their window dressing they might have less to complain about.

The Fremantle Roundhouse, Western Australia’s oldest public building was a wonderful setting for a very wonderful art show on Wednesday evening.

Fremantle artist Kelsey Ashe had created ten limited edition drawings as a fund raiser for the Fremantle Fashion Collective and many people turned up to admire and buy her work.

The Roundhouse is a great setting for small events and functions, so keep it in mind.

FREMANTLE FASHION COLLECTIVE ART AT ROUNDHOUSE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fashion, roundhouse, Uncategorized by freoview on November 14, 2017

 

There is an interesting art show on inside the Fremantle Roundhouse this Wednesday evening between 6.30 and 8pm.

Renowned Freo textile artist Kelsey Ashe has created limited edition artworks for the Fremantle Fashion Collective. All proceeds will go to the collective to support upcoming fashion designers.

Kelsey Ashe’s detailed drawings are hand embellished and have a Fremantle theme, so they are something different and not to be missed.

While up on Arthur Head enjoy a beautiful sunset and the last rays of sunshine of the day on the sublime Felice Varini artwork along High Street.
