The most competitive fashions in the field in the country, this is the culmination of a year's worth of raceday competitions.

For the first time in 2023, the opening round of The Ned Prix de Fashion was open to women who had yet to pre-qualify for the national final in one of the regional competitions that took place around the country this season.  ​
