SPRING RACING FASHION WITH COUNTRY ROAD

September 24, 2018
SPRING RACING FASHION WITH COUNTRY ROAD

Giddy up with these equissentials for Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival

The social season is well and truly here, and if you’re planning to spend it trackside with your girlfriends, then you need to know how to dress the part!

We collaborated with the fab team at onetwo agency to promote Country Road’s latest Spring Racing collection, which is filled with on-trends designs to help you rock on and off the field.

Captured by Simon Shiff and Liz Sunshine at the gorgeous Gardens House in Melbourne’s Royal Botanical Gardens, we styled an intimate brunch for a selected guest list.

While the scene was set with classic furniture from Dann Event Hire, the award-winning caterers from Atlantic Group produced premium platters that tasted even more delicious than it looked!

With an abundance of fresh seasonal florals arranged by Flowers by Brett Matthew John on the table and plinths (supplied by The Big Letter Co), as well as at the entrance to the styling room, spring was certainly embraced.

For those extra LENZO touches, we enlisted the help of acrylic queen Sketch & Etch, who supplied the most amazing blush and metallic gold signage, suspended in a custom-made frame by Shape Steel.

Entourage Events provided the branded media wall and floor decals, which are essentials for any corporate event.

And, when it comes to what to wear for the upcoming Spring Races, we can tell you that it’s all about being inspired by nature: expect to see a lot of burnt orange, browns, greens + yellows in the fashion colour palette.

We had a lot of fun sampling the latest collection of women's and menswear from Country Road inside the styling suite.

Of course, it's not just the women who get to have all the fun dressing up for the Spring Racing Carnival in 2018! Country Road also delivered the goods for all the stylish men out there, with garments and accessories designed to respect the dress codes and traditions of specific race days whilst acknowledging current trends.
