Race wear sits in its own category within the realm of fashion. It is elegant, sophisticated, stylish, reflects the celebratory atmosphere of the races and, most importantly, it is daywear. Race wear should not be confused with eveningwear and care should be taken not to dress for a night out but for an exciting day at the races.
If you wish to become fashion royalty of the year and be in to win thousands of dollars in prizes, make sure you enter The Crossing Fashion Starts Here competition when entries open in September.
The full competition details will be available in September but here is a tip to get you started on planning your outfit; Understanding and interpreting current fashion trends scores additional kudos. Not all fashion trends can be translated into style-worthy race wear, but outfits that reflect appropriate elements of the season’s latest silhouettes and colour palettes may give an original and modern edge.
Please note: While entry into the competition is free, you will need to purchase a gate entry ticket to the IRT NZ Trotting Cup Day 2021 to access the competition.
