Steve’s dressed for suc­cess at Cup party

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

STEVE’S Bar and Cafe has teamed up with WA fash­ion la­bel Ae’lkemi to host its big­gest and best Mel­bourne Cup event yet.

Steve’s gen­eral man­ager Glen Par­sons said he had “pushed the lim­its” with Mel­bourne Cup for four years.

“We changed the for­mat and went party-style rather than sit-down, which changed the dy­nam­ics of the event,” he said.

“It’s grown over past few years; we’ve got­ten more re­laxed with how we bring on our spon­sors.”

Ae’lkemi founder and de­signer Alvin Fernandez said his fash­ion show at Steve’s on Mel­bourne Cup day would have a sim­i­lar vibe to his re­cent Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val show.

“We’re re­ally ex­cited to be on board in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Steve’s this year as the de­mo­graphic and clien­tele is well suited with Ae’lkemi’s brand,” he said.

Mr Par­sons said this year he in­volved big­ger play­ers such as Ae’lkemi and was happy to have them on board for Perth’s “most lux­u­ri­ous” Mel­bourne Cup event.

“We’re ex­pect­ing it to be big – we have a li­censed mar­quee in the carpark, which is a first for us,” he said.
