Tuesday saw a day where the nation stopped at 3pm on the dot, looked up at a big screen near by, headpiece on and betting card in hand, while, for a few minutes we waited to see if our chosen horse made it over the finish line at place number 1. Around the nation, in every state it was a day to trade our office wear in for a festive cocktail dress and experiment with a pill box hat or a sultry lace headband. Melbourne Cup, not only kept to Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, is a day where festivities are aplenty.
Perth was no different and definitely kept up with the spirit of spring racing. The fashions on the field were transported to The Beach Club in Cottesloe where the off track celebrations saw Cottesloe boutique ACO present a beautifully styled fashion show. The parade included pieces by Maticevski, Ellery, IRO, Theory and last but not least, our very own THORN.
