Perth’s favourite cheese bar Fromage Artisans has joined up with award-winning designer Stasera for Perth Fashion Festival event Tonight – A Gathering which has been described as “decadent”.

Drawing inspiration from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “In this blue garden men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars” the collaboration will bring to an event that celebrates late night conversation, artisan produce and fashion in Fromage Artisan’s unique basement venue.

Tonight – A Gathering will be less runway show and more of a Hollywood era film style installation.

“Stasera translates to “tonight” in Italian and for this event, I have drawn inspiration from 1920s Hollywood to create a collection that is feminine and sophisticated and designed to make women feel as special as the stars,” Designer Danielle Marklew said.

“By working with Fromage Artisans and setting it under the crystal lights of their unique space, I believe it creates the perfect setting to celebrate this collection and the culture of all handmade artisan products….from artisan cheeses, wines, through to fashion and handmade accessories”.

“It is about celebrating creative endeavour,” Fromage Artisan Director Danicia Quinlan said.

“There is no end to the local talent we have here in WA.

“I believe this one-off event will surprise and delight guests with just how much we have to showcase.

“To be able to do so as part of the 20th anniversary of the Perth Fashion Festival and its curated cultural program is simply an honour.”
