Spring is in the air foxes, and that means it’s time to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for race time!
Top Shop Melbourne Emporium invited me to their special styling spring racing with Kate Waterhouse & Rachel Wayman on Tuesday night.
The night was an absolute treat! I mean that literally, with a beautiful array of cakes and sweets provided by lux bite.
Excited fashionistas sipped on Pommery bubbles and gathered upstairs Topshop upper level at Melbourne Emporium to listen receive the latest style tips for this season, and who better to get race-ready with than Kate Waterhouse & Rachel Wayman, fashion director ELLE Australia.
Since growing up, Kate has always been surrounded by the Australian racing scene. She remembers her mum getting ready for the races and always admiring what she wore. Kate says she's a big believer of the following tradition, although in recent years the dress code has become more relaxed and runway styles hitting the carnival scene reflect that. It's always lovely to hear such insights from a style icon. I also had the amazing fortune to meet the illustrator of my dreams, Aaron Favaloro; who drew me!
The styles from Topshop for the racing carnival were fun, featuring all the Spring classics lace pieces, from culottes to baby doll dresses in beautiful bright palettes. Outfits were pieced with not your typical traditional headwear but with playful with bunny and cat ear fascinators, adding a very cute and quirky aspect to the styling. The evening proved (as if there was any doubt!) that Topshop is your one stop shop. They have everything you need to style you from head to toe, so be sure to visit and get yourself prepped for race season!
Better get your tail moving and get shopping foxes!
