Spring Racing Carnival 2012 Wrap

After six weeks and 14 articles (this one makes 15) the beginning of the end of Spring Racing Carnival for me started on Derby Eve. And like so many good things it started with celebratory champagne. The bubbles at Moet’s annual Derby Eve party we served in golden goblets which

Oscar & Wild goes to the races

One of my favourite sayings is attributed to fashion boutique Oscar & Wild‘s famous namesake. The oft-quoted novelist Oscar Wilde said “you can never be over-dressed or over-educated”. This is especially true for the Spring Racing Carnival where the best-dressed punters of the day are thoughtfully styled (as for the

Flemington Spring Fashion Lunch

The 2012 Spring Racing Carnival officially began last weekend and so now’s the time that I switch StyleMelbourne from a Melbourne Spring Fashion Week focus to “what to wear to the races?” mode. A fusion of both was Flemington’s annual Spring Fashion Lunch during MSFW. Particularly special this season is

The Caulfield Cup Carnival is coming

I’ve got a lucky 13(!) spring racing related events to find hats and trackside-appropriate dresses for so far. So thinking about the carnival already probably isn’t too early. Caulfield Racecourse’s celebrations start next month and their hunt for two fresh faces is underway. Kelly Bannister, Kate Hopkins and Hetty Kate are

Paspaley Polo in the City

Ahhh the polo season is almost upon us. Get your espadrilles and sun-dresses ready. It’s like a cross between the Spring Racing Carnival (sans the rabble) and a visit to your local yacht club (of course you have one of those), with a little festival atmosphere mixed in. To me there is

Caulfield Cup Carnival 2011 Launch

Melbourne Racing Club launched their Spring racing carnival campaign for 2011 a little while ago but I got so wrapped up with fashion week and a few special projects that it’s taken me a little while to share this with you. I’ll be heading to Guineas Day this Saturday to

Blue Diamond Fashion Stakes 2011

Finally! The sun poured upon Caulfield racecourse‘s lawns on Saturday for what seemed like (and probably was) the first time this Spring/Summer Racing season.  And in good time too; as though we now have Autumn and Winter racing to look forward to they are marginally less fun to dress up

Magic 2011

I’ll be finishing up my official LMFF week with a touch of magic! Magic 2011 is WACCI’s (We’re Australian Creative Collective inc) gala fundraiser for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre and features the only couture fashion show on the festival line up. Designs from Melbourne couturier Mathieu Salem and Dom

Werribee Races 2010

The sun shone on Werribee Racecourse this past weekend as Country Racing returned for the first time in several years after a major redevelopment of the track. And so did racing style. Country racing’s version of Fashions on the Field hunts for the best dressed ladies over the racing seasons.

Werribee Christmas Races

The races are not over yet! Forget Flemington, Caulfield and Moonee Valley; my attention now turns to the country races with its picnic atmosphere and lack of maddening hordes. This Saturday 4th December from 10am the horses return to Werribee Racing Club (Bulban Road, Werribee) for the Christmas Races. Adult
