Luxury Italian fashion house Gucci is set to sponsor the Melbourne Cup Carnival with their Oaks Day race, the ‘Gucci Icons of Heritage Stakes’, paying homage to the equestrian heritage the brand was founded on in 1921 by Guccio Gucci.
Gucci will host the exclusive Gucci Private Suite in Flemington’s Hill Stand for their VIP customers, media and special guests on Emirates Melbourne Cup Day and Crown Oaks Day, providing a truly luxurious experience. Perched directly above the finishing line and boasting sweeping views of the racecourse, the Gucci Private Suite will provide race enthusiasts with the perfect vantage point.
Custom-designed with Gucci furnishings and the brand’s signature gold and chocolate tones, guests of the Suite will be treated to Champagne and the Italian flavours of Richmond-based provincial restaurant Union Dining. Racing insiders will be on hand to provide guests with their expert tips.
