Who will reign supreme?

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

Your last chance to qualify for The Ned Prix de Fashion Regional Final is in the ‘Qualifying Round’ competition on Derby Day. This is open to women who have yet to pre-qualify for the national final in one of the regional competitions that have taken place around the country this season.  ​

Four lucky ‘wild cards’ who score the most points, as determined by our expert panel of judges, will join our prequalified regional finalists in The Ned Prix de Fashion Regional Final held later that day. From this group, our judges select our top five Grand Finalists and from there, our Supreme Winner is announced for 2024.
