Both women and men were dressed to the nines for Saturday’s J Swap Contractors Matamata Breeders’ Stakes Fashion in the Fields competition.
Judges Kyle Goldsack from Tauranga, Roselle Blockey from Mount Maunganui and Stephie Joustra from Auckland, who are all industry professionals, had the tough job on the day to decide category winners and then overall supreme award.
Cambridge woman Alisha Maxwell first won the Envisage Classic Raceday Elegance category and was then announced as the Tuscany Road Supreme winner. This now qualifies her to attend the prestigious national final of Viva Prix De Fashion, held at Ellerslie on Derby Day.
