The Spring Racing Carnival is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with an afternoon of great food and fabulous fashion at Flemington?
The red carpet certainly set the sartorial tone for the day, with Myer Ambassador Rachael Finch arriving looking perfectly chic in a black mini-dress with navy lace detailing by White Suede and a custom-designed Natalie Bikicki headpiece. Rebecca Judd and Myer Ambassador Lauren Phillips both wowed in their textured monochromatic Alex Perry looks while host Rebecca Maddern of Channel 7 embraced her colourful side in a vibrant yellow and white striped Búl ensemble finished off with a Kim Fletcher headpiece. Equestrian enthusiast Georgia Connolly made her debut as the 2015 Myer Fashions on the Field Ambassador in a stunning pink look by Yeojin Bae and structured headpiece by Kim Fletcher.
While the promise of champagne and a delicious three-course meal designed by Peter Rowland may have lured guests to the lunch, it was the Myer Spring Racing Fashion Show that really had guests paying attention. Myer Ambassador Rachael Finch opened the show in a beautiful red lace mini dress by Preen and stunning gold headpiece by Viktoria Novak, leading the way for a colour filled show with beautiful racewear looks by Myer designers including Arthur Galan AG, Yeojin Bae and by johnny. For those set on maintaining a monochrome look, there was plenty of raceday inspiration from the likes of Alex Perry, Karen Millen and Asilio. Millinery for this season is looking as beautiful as ever, with more structured and graphic shapes coming through in headpieces, while the more subtle and elegant clips and metallic headbands are still very much on trend.
With picture perfect blue skies, the sun out and racing fashion in full swing, the Myer Spring Fashion Lunch has us counting down the days until we can hit the track. In the meantime, we’ve got outfits to organise! See you trackside…
