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.

Well, now that I got your attention with my catchy headline you might as well read on, you AFL and Fremantle Dockers tragics.

Dangerfield is coming to Fremantle, but it’s not Brownlow Medal winner Patrick.

It is the Melbourne born and bread fashion outlet, who say about themselves:

Dangerfield is a Melbourne born label that is inspired by the streets, and energised by individuality. Known for iconic prints, unique pieces and a timeless styling, Dangerfield combines a poppy aesthetic with a little bit of edge, deriving inspiration from pop culture past and present, gritty music halls and the whimsy of nature.

Stocking girls and guys clothing and accessories, Dangerfield brings together an eclectic style set, Dangerfield easily combines an alternative, punk, rockabilly, and vintage aesthetic, inviting each wearer to find their own distinct personal style within the racks.

They’ll open a new shop this coming Saturday, November 11 at 38 Market Street in Fremantle, near the corner of High Street, so go and check them out!

WE HAVE A COMMON GROUND TO SUPPORT FREO TRADERS!

Posted in city of fremantle, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on July 4, 2017

 

COMMON GROUND the retail collective in Fremantle High Street has moved to the smaller premises next door in the same building.

These are challenging times for retailers all over Australia and they need the support of the entire Freo community.

It would be nice to see the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce taking positive action and support our traders through promotion, rather than just criticising the City of Fremantle,

The Fremantle City marketinging department and BID should get the support from an organisation that claims to represent the business community.
