The Melbourne Cup Carnival kicked off this week with Derby Day. It’s my favourite day of the carnival because I love the sophistication and elegance of the traditional ‘black and white’ theme. I’m lucky enough to be working on the coverage with Channel 7, talking fashion, food and interviewing special guests invited into the birdcage. As expected, white on white was popular around the track and we saw a lot more sculptural headwear and bold hats as opposed to feathers and fluff. The winner of the Myer Fashions on the Field was Ashleigh Albanese from Traralgon who made her entire outfit herself, sitting up until 5am the morning of the competition sewing. Congratulations Ashleigh, looking forward to seeing you on Thursday for the National finals.
