Food+Fashion+Art Fusion at 140 Perth

A colourful, ‘arty’ spray can arrived by courier a few weeks back. Hmmmm… I was intrigued!!

The keepsake can was covered in budgerigars! It was painted by Anya Brock, one of my favourite artists. Turns out to be a novel invite to a viewing of the transformation of 140 Perth. Wow WOW!

Perth is rapidly evolving and 140 Perth is well underway with its multi-million dollar transformation. It’s turning into an uber cool, ‘Food Fashion Art’ precinct. What an awesome combo!!

An intimate group of guests arrived at 140 Perth for our twilight urban tour. After a ‘Welcome’ Mojito cocktail, our guided walk began.

First stop? Pippa McManus. What a treat chatting with and hearing from the creatives themselves. Pip explained her inspiration came from streetstyle and descibed her 7 images as cool, grungy models. Love that!!

As we toured 140 Perth, Cocktail Gastronomy tempted us with the yummiest treats ever! Resistance is useless!!

We moved on around the corner, to view Ian Much’s fun characters adorning the Nandos facade.

Then oo’d and aah’d over Anya Brock’s vibrant, larger than life budgies wrapped around the ground floor of the Aviary.

image

As we stopped at each installation, each artist descibed their techniques and the materials they used. Fascinating.

My outfit was casual, streetstyle. Nobody ripped jeans, booties and a layered denim, leopard mix. Easy.

What footwear does one wear for an ‘Arty’ walking tour? Adidas sneakers above, worn by one guest or…

image

…the hottest Senso heels worn by bloggers Rayne Embley and Ali Sims.

As the tour wound up, the artists, kindly agreed to a group snap! Thanks Sara Winfield (L), Andrew Frazer and Anya Brock (R).

Cheers and post tour treats to end a fabulous night at 140 Perth. Can’t wait for the transformation to be complete.

Spoilt rotten with a fresh rose, posy jar and goodie bag to take home. BIG thanks to 140 Perth and Caitlin and Zara our PeachandPineapple crew!

** There are 12 Urban artist displays all up. A nifty 140 Perth brochure is available. It describes each artist and their work. It also maps out a tour for you with tips and handy hints. What a great weekend outing! Perhaps with a visit to Jamie’s Italian as a treat as well!!
