Meet, Mija Reynolds. She was sashed with the 2018 Port Augusta Cup Best Dressed Womenswear title in July. Her all black everything outfit was complemented with stand out accessories - she even brought Karl Lagerfield to the country races - in a brooch form. Mija proved to onlookers and the judges how winter racing fashion is done.
We spent 5 minutes with Mija after her win to get to know her a little more. Read on...

First time at The Races? I’ve always gone to the races – all over the country. I can’t remember the first time I went to the races.
I couldn’t do a day trackside without: Comfortable shoes and good company
The last time I entered Fashion at The Races was: At the 2018 Hawker Cup
The most embarrassing thing I’ve ever worn is: I’ve never worn anything that I’ve been embarrassed about
My favourite thing I own is: My millinery collection
What people might not know about me: 90% of the time I wear really unfashionable clothing and no make-up due to the nature of my business working with livestock on my property in the outback
Weekends look like: Lots of walking, camping in one of our creeks, exploring and spending time with family and friends
I love to indulge in: Millinery
My kind of day out is: Drinks with friends at an event on a beautiful day
On my bucket list I want to: Travel to the UK and attend Ascot Races
I wish I could have a glass of bubbles with: Any of my friends!
This year I am looking forward to: A skiing holiday
I love The Races because: It’s a great opportunity to get dressed up and express my style, meet other Field Fashion enthusiasts, have a flutter and catch up with friends over some drinks.
