One of the thousand perks of my job as Creative Director of Australia’s favourite house of sparkling, is that I get to be involved in the fun that is the fashion around Spring racing time! These last two weeks have been pretty manic, but so much fun! As it is Melbourne Cup Day today in Australia, here is a recap of my favourite looks from this year's spring racing carnival, all styled to perfection by Yellowglen Fashion Ambassador, Lana Wilkinson.
My favourite look was Caulfield Cup day, wearing Maticevski! But my favorite millinery was on Derby Day, as this incredible piece from Danica Erard was made from Yellowglen - no joke! The fabric used in the golden piece was made by a company called Nanollose from sustainable fabric, created from 3 bottles of Yellowglen sparkling! It took a few weeks to create & then was made into this magical headpiece by Danica. -SWx
