*Press Release*

Perth Fashion Festival (PFF) is set to expand its global reach in 2012 with the announcement of two new international ambassadors, Jean Michel Jarre, French composer, performer and music producer and Marie Choo, a well-known and respected Singaporean fashion and lifestyle writer and socialite.

These new appointments will see PFF’s ambassadorial program fuse the talents of music, fashion and photography in three different corners of the world with Jarre and Choo joining PFF’s inaugural international ambassador and New York based fashion photographer, Russell James to help put WA designers on the international map.

Jarre first came to international fame three decades ago with his number one hit album Oxygene and in 2013 he plans to present Rendez-vous Perth, a tailored, city-scale, civic concert event. He personifies French couture with his natural elegance and style and his music is most often aired to accompany the presentations of the co llections of major fashion houses.

“Since attending last year’s Festival and seeing firsthand WA’s creative talents, it’s a thrill to start building community connections that will be the foundation for Rendez-vous Perth. I’m honoured to be appointed one of Perth Fashion Festival’s International Ambassadors.” said Jean Michel Jarre

“Perth and its people are extraordinary. That is why it will be easy for me share the PFF story with my contacts in the creative world. Who knows, perhaps I may be able to open doors internationally for WA’s immensely talented creative industry.”

Marie Choo contributes articles to publications such as Nylon and InSing as well as writing for her fashion and style blog, Style-Canvas.

“It is such an honour for me to be appointed as an International Ambassador for Perth Fashion Festival 2012, alongside Jean Michel Jarre and one of the world 9;s leading fashion photographers, WA-born Russell James,” said Marie Choo.

“This year will be the first time I’ve attended Perth Fashion Festival and having read and heard so much about the vibrant Perth fashion scene, I am looking forward to discovering the established labels, as well as emerging designers.”

PFF is keen to appoint international ambassadors who are key creative influencers in their domestic market to support WA’s creative industry and the City of Perth in their home countries.

"I am so proud and excited by the addition of two new international ambassadors to the Perth Fashion Festival team for the simple reason that it will take Perth's brand global and in doing so allows our talent and creativity to be seen worldwide,” said Perth Lord Mayor and Perth Fashion Festival Ambassador, Lisa Scaffidi.

"These ambassadors will enable international visitors to realise that o ur State’s strengths go beyond mining and natural beauty. Our creative industry and city are truly inspirational and world standard."

PFF is supported by the State Government through Eventscorp, the Department of Culture and the Arts and the City of Perth.

Further information on PFF 2012 program of events will be unveiled in coming weeks.

Perth Fashion Festival 19-25 September 2012.

Fashion Talks 2012

Press Release;

*Note: I have been to one or more of these each year and they are FULL of information - go grab coffee with your mum or sister and go with her to this....they serve wine too :) 

Dr. Gene Sherman, Gallery Owner and Philanthropist
Charlotte Smith, The Darnell Vintage Collection
Karen Quinlan, Director of Bendigo Art Gallery

Fashion Talks is Fremantle Arts Centre’s annual series, bringing fashion icons to the stage to discuss their career, their craft and the industry as a whole.

Heralding from remarkably different backgrounds, each of these women have made significant contributions to the industry in Australia. Over the series audiences will meet a gallery director
and philanthropist with a penchant for Japanese minimalism, the heiress of the country’s largest vintage collection, and the woman who has singlehandedly turned a regional town into a fashion capital.

On Friday 3 August series host, Meri Fatin, will be joined by Charlotte Smith. In 2004, Charlotte inherited The Darnell Collection from her godmother, which comprises what is now Australia’s
largest private collection of vintage clothing and accessories. Doris Darnell, a Pennsylvanian Quaker, collected over 5,000 items from traditional garments from the 18th century alongside incredible pieces by Valentino, Chanel, Balenciaga and Pucci. The Darnell Collection has been
featured in a range of high-end fashion editorials, runway shows and fine art exhibitions, including a recent exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery.

Gallery director and philanthropist Dr. Gene Sherman has been collecting and wearing pieces by Japanese designers Issey Miyake, Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto since the 1980s.

Gene presents at Fashion Talks on Tuesday 7 August to discuss her attraction to Japanese minimalism, the precise way in which she acquires and ‘retires’ garments from her working wardrobe, and the recent donation of over 60 pieces to the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

Karen Quinlan, Director of the Bendigo Art Gallery in regional Victoria, is the final presenter of the 2012 Fashion Talks series on Tuesday 14 August. Karen’s background in fashion has informed her practice as a curator, securing renowned exhibitions from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London to record-breaking crowds in Bendigo. From The Golden Age of Couture featuring the designs of Galliano and McQueen, to Grace Kelly: Style Icon, Karen has brought some of the world’s greatest designers to our shores.
