Fashions On The Field 2016

Kristen Henry

Nursing sore feet from a long day of fabulousness at Melbourne Cup? Guilty.

Melbourne Cup at Thoroughbred Park has wrapped and the cleaners have packing down the marquees but there is still time to re-live some of the amazing outfits we saw at Fashions on the Field this year.

What we wanted as judges of Fashions on the Field? Bold and bright with a statement headpiece.

This is the day to be fashion forward, follow what you’ve seen on the runway and be cheeky but don’t forget to apply race day elegance – leave your black and white at home (save that for Derby Day!).


Stephanie Kwong from O’Connor (center) sported local milliner Sovata and blew us away with her unusual choice of outfit. Stephanie accessorised well, stood out and took out the top prize.

For the guys, it was ALL about the three-piece suit, the double-breasted suit and their attention to detail. A fun pair of socks or a great pocket square also went a long way with us!


Luke Signor from Braddon and his Melbourne Cup yellow rose stole the show and took out the men’s category.

It was a little chilly this year but you all looked great! I’ll see you at Black Opal.


Love, your Thoroughbred Park Ambassador,
