Spring Siz­zle in SA Fash­ions at the Races

Fash­ion at the Races

Ladies in Racing - - Contents -

Spring is syn­ony­mous with flo­ral fash­ion and race­go­ers through­out South Aus­tralia em­braced this peren­nial favourite while still adding their own unique take to out­fits. The Fash­ion at the Races statewide style search was held at five race meet­ings – Balaklava, Gawler, Mur­ray Bridge, Jamestown and Mor­phettville – dur­ing spring. The win­ner of each com­pe­ti­tion in­cor­po­rated botan­i­cal el­e­ments into their looks. Elle Grif­fiths (5) im­pressed judges at the Balaklava Cup in Septem­ber with her mono­chrome at­tire, pair­ing a clas­sic black ASOS top with a pat­terned Shona Joy skirt and head­wear by Claire Hahn Millinery and Stylist. At the Sch­weppes Gawler Cup later the same month, Fash­ion at the Races win­ner Laura So­den (1) teamed a Port­mans’ flo­ral dress in muted tones with or­ange and blue millinery and nude heels. A soft, gar­den-in­spired out­fit also proved a cham­pion choice for Jus­tine Lund­berg (3) at the Mel­bourne Cup at Mor­phettville in Novem­ber. Her un­der­stated white and green Ted Baker dress was off-set by a flo­ral crown and sim­ple ac­ces­sories. A pop of pur­ple was Marie Jef­fries’ (2) se­cret to suc­cess at the Mur­ray Bridge Gold Cup in Oc­to­ber. She co-or­di­nated her pur­ple head­wear, by Re­becca Scott Millinery, with shoes in the same shade and a dress fea­tur­ing an in­tri­cate wreath pat­tern. And at the Jamestown Cup, Emily Rogers (4) wore a crisp Fifth The La­bel white dress with black Mor­gan and Tay­lor head­wear, prov­ing less is of­ten more. She will progress to the re­gional fi­nal at the Clare Easter Races in March next year. Elle, Laura, Jus­tine and Marie have au­to­mat­i­cally qual­i­fied for the Fash­ion at the Races fi­nal at Mor­phettville in May when the win­ner will col­lect a $25,000 lux­ury rac­ing hol­i­day for two to Asia. Se­cond prize is a BNKR shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence that in­cludes $2,000 to spend on clothes. There’s still plenty of time to en­ter the 2015/16 com­pe­ti­tion, with up­com­ing qual­i­fy­ing events be­ing held in all cor­ners of the state from Kan­ga­roo Is­land to Port Lin­coln. Judges look for en­trants who em­brace time­less el­e­gance but let their per­son­al­i­ties shine through. To find out more, visit www.fash­ion­atther­aces.com.au
