Spring is officially in the air and already a kaleidoscope of colour is spinning its way into our wardrobes, getting us in the mood for the warm season ahead. And what better way to celebrate than with the Spring Racing fashions we can look forward to wearing track side.
With racing icon Gai Waterhouse in the front row, and hosted by fellow racing royalty, Emma Freedman along with former Miss Universe Australia and newly appointed Fashion and Social Ambassador for the BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival 2012, Jesinta Campbell, the David Jones MSFW Spring Racing fashion show proved its racing status before the models even hit their stride on the pop-up catwalk.
Samantha Harris opened the show in a classic Willow ensemble with orangeade accents and tweed pumps in a low kitten heel for added all day comfort. This was followed on by even more colour from Josh Goot’s spectacular floral shifts, to flouncy fluoro dresses and lace frocks in lemon-esque tones.
But the take away trends were the printed pant suit from an all over floral to simple black and white; and the 70s jumpsuit which has been given a modern reinvention with lace panel detailing and a sleeker fit by Australian favourites, Lover.
