Fashion on the Field competitions are a popular part of local race meetings, and are an excellent way of showcasing a race goer’s style and flair. While entering Fashions of the Field is becoming increasingly popular with race goers, there are a few guidelines generally followed by judges that contenders should take into account when composing their outfit.
The key to a successful outfit is appropriateness; it must fall squarely in the category of race wear as well as suiting the season. The term “race wear” incorporates classic, elegant styles – avoid anything tight, revealing, strapless or midriff baring. Do however consider trouser or a jumpsuit, but the same rules apply for length – not shorts. Also keep in mind that races are a daytime event, so be wary of material and shapes that spell out evening, like sequins or high shine materials.
In 2020/21 Richmond Turf Club will transform our Fashions of the Field into a modern virtual based competition. Registrations will be open in the week leading up to the even. A judge will select finalists from entrants in attendance on the day in person or via video link.
It will take you only minutes to enter the competition allowing freedom to enjoy the trackside festivities, premium hospitality and excitement of country racing.
Announcements will be made for entrants to showcase their outfits in front of spectators after the 3rd Race. The winning entrants will then be announced and awarded their prizes at the sashing ceremony.
