Glam up to claim a prize
Take the reins of your self expression by entering the coveted Fashions on the Field at the Godolphin Seymour Cup on October 22.
Fashions on the Field isn’t just about competing, it’s also about the love of watching competitors’ outfits come to life with a twirl.
Remember, personalities and joy make the outfits shine, so don’t be afraid to do something different that symbolises you.
Spring racing fashion is ultimately lady-like, feminine and sophisticated.
Maybe a bold red lipstick shade to emphasise a bright smile? Or for the fellas, try accessories with hats, canes or a pocket square or cravat.
There are five different categories, with prizes of up to $500 on offer.
Registrations for Seymour Cup’s Fashions on the Field will be taken at the information booth on the day and will close at 1 pm. Judging categories are: racegoer of the day; young racegoer of the day; most glamorous duo; best hat; and junior racegoer of the day.
Victoria Jane Millinery racegoer of the day
This category will be judged on the use of style, colour and the contestants’ ability to use accessories to best complement his or her outfit.
