What a beautiful morning it was celebrating our 2017-18 FATR season finalists and celebrating the new 2018-19 Fashion At The Races season. Some of Adelaide’s key media personalities and fashion influencers joined us to celebrate all things fashion and racing over an elegantly set breakfast at Morphettville Racecourse. A special shout out to Alyce Tran from The Daily Edited who provided all our guests with a personalised gift – and to BNKR for providing everyone with a take home voucher to get race day ready. The event was hosted by Paige Kerin (who previously called TRSA and Fashion At The Races home) from Channel 10’s show Survivor. She welcomed our finalists, congratulated our well-deserved winners and welcomed new season sponsors.
Our 2017-18 winners are:
· Peoples’ Choice Award: Kimmi Varcoe from the Millicent Cup
· Menswear Winner: Robbie Lippett from Melbourne Cup
· Womenswear Runnerup: Melissa Barnes from the Murray Bridge Cup
· Womenswear Winner: Leah Habel from the Naracoorte Cup
