Emirates Melbourne Cup Launch. Sydney

Can anyone believe it’s that time of year again? Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival is right around the corner, which means a crazy few months ahead. To launch the Emirates Melbourne Cup in Sydney, I styled the gorgeous Victoria Racing Club’s 2017 Flemington Ambassador Gigi Connolly and her squad. Delving into the new Spring collections from MYER, this season’s styling is all about muted pastel shades and opulent gold accents.

This year Sydneysiders won’t have to miss out on all the Spring racing festivities with a live site to be hosted at Barangaroo. The Victorian Racing Club, Lendlease and G.H.Mumm are welcoming over 3000 people to Barangaroo to celebrate Emirates Melbourne Cup Day in style. Mark your calendars for Tuesday 7th November because this is one afternoon you won’t want to miss! Think big screens airing Channel 7 coverage, a dining hub filled with pop-up eateries and an exclusive VIP G.H.Mumm marquee.
