Last week I was invited to attend a rare showcase at one40william where the retail building ‘140’ was transformed into a large-scale canvas for 12 Australian artists who were commissioned to create their works re-imaginging shop fronts in and around the Wellington, William and Murray Street mall. 140’s Marketing Manager and the brainchild behind this innovative collaboration, entitled ‘140 Art’, where food, art and fashion collide is Kristi Dempster who enlisted Form Gallery to help nurture the artists through the project.

This project marks the beginning of an inspired journey to transform the CBD based property into a destination where food, art and fashion collide. The redesign will incorporate a permanent art package that will connect the architecture to physical spaces that people will want to explore and be part of. The artists include: Amok Island, Andrew Frazer, Andy Quilty, Anya Brock, Ian Mutch, Joseph Boin, Michelle Leslie, Phibs, Pippa McManus, Rebecca Wetzler, Sara Winfield and Tess Bury. Congratulations to all involved and for your work in helping to make Perth a super rad, culturally inspired place to live!

Amazing cocktails by Cocktail Gastronomy – the same people who did my recent INSIDE STYLE VOYEUR doco launch event. You know you’re in for a treat when they are providing the catering and beverages, yum! First we were treated to these delicious mojito cocktails, followed by some sort of incredibly smooth orange and red concoction (that’s what I’m calling it and I’m sticking to it!) I will have to find out the name.

The beautiful Bernardine Grigson who sang for us. She was incredibly non-offensive as an event singer, I just loved it! I would hire her in a New York minute for my next event!
