Fash­ion at its finest

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

The Ber­ri­gan Cup race day isn’t all about horse rac­ing, it’s also a chance to dress to your best.

And what bet­ter way to show off your best dress or suit than by en­ter­ing in Fash­ions on the Field.

Fash­ions on the Field at the Ber­ri­gan Cup has pro­duced some ex­cel­lent winners in the past — most notably was Sally-Anne Mal­lyon who went on to win Fash­ions on the Field at this year’s Caulfield Cup.

All prize winners at Ber­ri­gan win a sash and win a share of $2000 and spon­sor pack­ages.

The guest judge this year is Paris Bonat, pro­pri­etor of Mint Bou­tique in Yar­ra­wonga.

Ms Bonat said she’ll be very par­tic­u­lar in her judg­ing.

‘‘With over eight years ex­pe­ri­ence in fash­ion I’ll be look­ing for style and orig­i­nal­ity, at­ten­tion to de­tail and stage pres­ence,’’ she said.

If you’re still look­ing for a dress or suit to wear, then Sue Hill at Mur­ray Hut Cloth­ing in Fin­ley can sort you out.

‘‘We have a great range of bright and pas­tel colour which is per­fect for spring rac­ing sea­son,’’ she said.

‘‘And no­body wants to go to the races with­out a beau­ti­ful fas­ci­na­tor in their hair and new hand­bag.

‘‘For the men, get a new shirt and tie and don’t for­get a hat is very fit­ting to make you look like a pro­fes­sional punter.’’

Fash­ions judg­ing will take place be­tween races three and four.

All en­trants must reg­is­ter at the Pa­rade Stand be­tween races one and two. There will also be fash­ion ex­perts scouting the crowd for se­lec­tion. Judg­ing cat­e­gories are: Young Miss Race­goer (ages 12 to 16); Young Mr Race­goer (ages 12 to 16); Best Dressed Gent; Lady of the Day; Lo­cal Lady of the Day (re­sid­ing in Ber­ri­gan Shire); Best Hat; Best Dressed Cou­ple.

Liz Kelly shows off some of the rac­ing fash­ions avail­able at Fin­ley busi­nesses Shoex and Mur­ray Hut Cloth­ing for the Ber­ri­gan Cup.
