Oaks Day Fashion on the Field

The most important day for competitive fashion arrives as Oaks Day. One last daily final for our Victorian competitors was won by Ballarat resident Shona Cowell. Her white garden party appropriate frock was designed by a friend, Jade Lawer and was the perfect ladylike (as it tradition for Ladies day)

BMW Caulfield Cup Day Style

Saturday was a day of glamour, excitement, champagne and from memory there were some thoroughbreds parading about amongst the human fillies as well. Upon entering the Pegasus Marquee, we were greeted by glasses of champagne and a delightful range of canapés, (the chicken sandwiches were delicious beyond words)! The Marquee

Style Spy | Yellowglen Terrace | Turnbull Stakes Day

Aside from Turnbull Stakes champion horse Lucia Valentina, the other winners this past weekend seemed to be lady milliners. As the hub for style on this Melbourne Cup Carnival preview day, the Yellowglen Terrace was awash with beauties sporting mainly Danica Erard headpieces alongside serious showings by Jill and Jack

Runway 1 | Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014

It has been a bit of tumultuous time for couture designer Jason Grech of late. When creating the current ‘Birds of Prey’ range he reveals “I was in a dark sort of place, it’s not my old, bright, cheery, collection.” In the designer’s own words the collection is “majestic, a

Reflections: 2013

Before I skip off into the sunshine until 2014, I thought it might be nice to take a look back at some highlights of StyleMelbourne’s year that was. Both as an exercise in optimism as we move into 2014 and to jog my fading memory. A lot of the below

Derby Day 2013

This beautiful Derby Day past, I was thrilled to be invited by Myer to be a judge for the first time at Flemington for their Fashions on the Field competition. Deliberating alongside Fashions on the Field ambassador, model and equestrian Rebecca Bramich and beauty queen Laura Dundovic was quite intense. We

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

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
