Coinciding with 50 years of Fashions on the Field, this
beautiful book celebrates the unique and long-established link
between the Melbourne Cup Carnival and style.
Written by leading journalists, the book explores the fun and
flamboyance of fashion at Flemington through engaging essays, stunning
photography and reflections from industry luminaries, including a
foreword by iconic Irish hat designer Philip Treacy and an introduction
by Australian designer Leona Edmiston.
From the designers and milliners who have shaped today's racewear to
Jean Shrimpton and her little white dress, and the A-list stars–such as
Princess Diana and Sarah Jessica Parker–who have joined in the glamorous
Cup Carnival party, Fashion & Flemington is a must-have for any
fashion and racing enthusiast.
