LENZO teams up with the Melbourne Racing Club to bring you a sneak peek of the upcoming Caulfield Cup Carnival. Each Sunday for the next five weeks, we will be bringing you a new setting + scene, to get you lovelies #giddy for what is to come!
First up on our racing agenda is the David Jones Fashion Stable, which is where racing + fashion collide and is the #PLACEtoBE for any fashionista/blogger/social influencer. Here, you can be the #MODEL of the day with Fashions on The Field being replaced with a new digital fashion competition, where you can perfect your pout and jump into one of the four professional photography studios. After indulging in the superstar treatment, you then pick your three #FIERCEST shots, and are then instantly entered into the competition that has some seriously cool prizes up for grabs.
There will also be some runway shows for some race-day entertainment, featuring looks from everyone's favourite David Jones designers (think Rebecca Valance, Zimmerman and Kit X), with an elegant lounge and bar setup. There will also be roaming fashion illustrators, who can capture your look, which makes for the quintessential keepsake of the day.
The palette of the marquee is very aligned with the David Jones colours - think white, black and hints of copper. For florals, it is all about the #GREENERY in order to let the clothes #SHINE, which coincides with what we are seeing often this year in the world of events.
With that, LENZO wanted to create an amazing backdrop for the photos, so we did some stalking and called up fashion illustrator Sarah Darby to work some magic, and create the#PERFECT backdrop, that was paired with floor-draped Belle Balloons and sprinkles of sparkling confetti.
For the bar, Raven and the Rose worked her floral magic, which we then accessorised with Merci Perci bubble pots and furnishings form Coco and Creme + The Georgeous Store. We served 'The Chop Chop' cocktail from our friends at Schweppes featuring a delicious combination of Schweppes Lemonade, PIMM's, passionfruit and mint - and watch this space for our upcoming DIY recipe guide! Also, if you were wondering that gorge copper bar is from Harry The Hirer and we will be seeing this exact bar in The David Jones Fashion Stable!!
Our models loved getting dressed in this season's best from David Jones, taking shots in the photographic studios and sipping on some bubbly. We are #JEALOUS and can't wait to be joining in on the fun in a few weeks!Entry into the David Jones Fashion Stable is complimentary to all racegoers, so if you want to be the #FashionQueen this year, make sure you book your tickets ASAP here!
