Oaks Day we were excited that there may be a ray of sunshine to put a spring in our step. Alas it was not to be. Another day of Melbournes beautiful weather. It felt like it had come straight off the ice in the Antarctic. I have seen fashions on the field of the highest standard I have seen in some time, and I fell in love with romantic interpretations of pastel and streamline looks of Dior’s yesteryear. Again true to Melbourne/Flemington style they kept to a modern streamline silhouette. I loved on Derby we had the classic back and white with the simplistic key, then on Melbourne Cup day the elegant yet demure Valentino red backless, again with that simplistic feel. I was expecting a classic Oaks Day garment being that of floating floras and pinnacle of femininity. Again the judges threw us a curve ball and went for an ultra modern dress with two different textures for the top and bottom of the garment. A sheer ruched bodice and the strong overlapped folded skirt. Is this a racing trend that is going to take over??? I personally had some favorites which included the runner up in the Dior inspired Vintage and of course I am an Anthony Capon fan with Lisa Tan’s ensemble. I was bowled over with the ‘Pop Art’ inspired dress which I modeled over 15 years ago in a different line. I loved it, loved it, loved it. I did really like the winners outfit although I did have a few ahead of the judge’s decision. That is what makes this such an artistic fashion event. We all do not have to agree. I think allot of ladies favourite was the Miu Miu lavender complete with the shoes.
