Racing fashion epitomises glamour and is probably the only occasion in our wee country where extravagance is embraced and celebrated. My aim was to achieve this but be mindful about my choices and use sustainability as my inspiration. All the pieces which comprise my outfit are vintage or second-hand. I believe that by putting a little more time in, a glamorous and sustainable ensemble can be achieved because classic style is timeless and can transcend trends.
Choose one unique and beautiful piece as the focal point and build the outfit up to compliment that.

Because it’s a great opportunity to meet and celebrate other like-minded individuals who enjoy the occasion that fashions in the field presents. Also, for most people, entering fashions in the field will push you a bit outside your comfort zone.. which isn’t a bad place to be sometimes.
