With a warm buzz in the air, 2016 was going to bring all of Australia's most prominent competitors in Fashions on the Field forward. These savvy ladies from Queensland and interstate had the trends of 2015 although not a 'self portrait' dress in sight to showcase what they deemed most fashionable for Summer Carnival.
Every year there seems to be more photographers, tv cameras and now Fashions on the Field on 'Racing Fashion' Instagram streaming live to wherever you are on the planet.

Don't be shy because we love seeing what you are wearing and sometimes we repost to share what is new and fabulous.
Everyone has their own distinctive style, but with Inessa McIntyre nothing could be more to the truth. The russian ex pat now living on the Gold Coast is always one of the most fashion forward avant guarde ladies on the Coast and her style was centre front at the carnival. When I saw Inessa earlier in the day, we could see that there was an overwhelming confidence of self assurance that is lovely. Her qualities of loving to have fun, a fantastic personality and a zest for fun shines her into the lime light. There was no one there more deserving of the prize of best dressed on the day in my opinion. Inessa dresses for her self and often makes her own clothes and hats. One quality of Inessa's that is so beautiful is that she is a very genuine beautiful person with a wonderful manner. Se is always gracious in every competition I have seen her in. I must admit that there were some stunning outfits on stage and very well groomed ladies and gentlemen, but the judges were looking for something more in the competitors. This made Inessa a winner and we could not be happier to see Inessa fly down to Melbourne during Spring Racing Carnival to compete in Oaks Day, Myer Fashions on the Field Australian Final. A big congratulations to not only Inessa, but everyone who is a part of Fashions on the Field.
It does not matter if you are a competitor, mere face in the crowd or someone watching at home. It is beautiful that 'Racing Fashion' has created a community that we are welcomed to feel fantastic and who we want to present forward in fantastic fashion. Enjoy your fashion and love who you are and what you wear.
