The weather may have stopped us from holding the Fashion at The Races event at the Jamestown Cup, but it certainly made up for it at the Clare Cup with a stunning day in the Clare Valley. The sun shone on one of the most picturesque racecourses in the state for the 2016 Clare Cup. While Clare has its own Fashion at The Races event in April, there were still plenty of fashionable race goers to enter the Jamestown event being held there.
There were certainly some contenders for the top prize but it was clear Kirsten James was the winner with a beautiful tailored pant look. With plenty of experience at the races, the graphic designer from the Barossa Valley has been involved with the Mildura Racing Club and continues to attend events in some of the best parts of our states. We spoke to Kirsten after her win to find out a bit more about the winning look.
