STYLING EMIRATES MELBOURNE CUP TOUR IN SHANGHAI

When people talk about loving what you do, for me, never a truer word spoken than ”work” on this occasion. My client,The Victoria Racing Club, the world’s largest member-based racing club, asked me to style their fashion presentation at The Melbourne Cup Carnival Gala Dinner at Shanghai’s Ritz-Carlton celebrating the $6.2 million Emirates Melbourne Cup and yes, the trophy came with and yes, I touched it! With gloves of course.

 

Highlighting the Melbourne Cup Carnival’s social and fashion spectacle was made easy by styling the runway parade using the internationally renowned Melbourne-based Myermilliner Kim Fletcher, who was also on hand to talk all things Spring Racing to the captivated audience in Shanghai. Kim’s millinery from her latest collection was showcased in the runway parade featuring Myer designers new spring/summer 2014/15 collections from White Suede, Wayne Cooper, Ellery, Morrison, Toni Maticevski and Karen Millen.
