The spring racing season is fast approaching and it’s that time of year when our heads turn to planning outfits and the most talked about accessory – the hat!
Let it be known. The fascinator is no longer fascinating. It’s time to give a knowing nod to the trend and embrace a fresh look. Who better to show us the way, than the internationally acclaimed Philip Treacy whose creations adorn the heads of royalty and the rich and famous?
In his Spring Summer 2015 collection, Treacy features a dazzling array of head wear. Take inspiration from these suggested styles to go a bit fancy and become a Melbourne spring racing carnival show stopper.
Quietly elegant at the Caulfield Cup at Caulfield Racecourse

Tradition wins on Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse
The one that stopped the nation – The Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse
A clear winner at 3 lengths – Oaks Day at Flemington Racecourse
First past the post – Stakes Day at Flemington Racecourse
So take your cue from the man himself and go in search of designs that reflect these trends. It’s the season to be utterly, convincingly chic!
