How fabulous is it that we have a platform for new designers to showcase and win! Not only a showing of design, but a showcase of racewear. There was a particularly high caliber of designers this year with beautiful matching millinery. To me there were probably 5 striking looks that really caught my attention and really it had to be a matter of your taste for who you voted for. Of course, Anthony Capon’s latest racewear design had us marveling at the attention to detail with millinery being a clock set to three, what creative genius. Of course I had so much fun catching up with my FB Bestie Craig Braybrook and fallen for his latest love Lola. Zandra Rhodes is so much more than fabulous I don’t know what to say and such a delightful lady. I am so glad there was a burst of colour from her. Just when we think Melbourne is sticking to stuffy black, white and beige, Zandra a true fashion Icon shows us you can not only wear colour, you can be colour. Had a ball talking with Kellie Hush from the Sydney Morning Herald and she was wearing the more than fabulous, Burberry. I was careful not to drewl in her direction. I was so glad to see that in this section there were true ‘fashion Icon’s’ and ‘fashion identies’ as well as designers who have the right to judge. Anthony, nothing can be taken away from your fashion genius, it is so well deserved even though you were up all night with the super glue. Love it.
