Product Description

Coinciding with 50 years of Fashions on the Field, this beautiful book celebrates the unique and long-established link between the Melbourne Cup Carnival and style.

Written by leading journalists, the book explores the fun and flamboyance of fashion at Flemington through engaging essays, stunning photography and reflections from industry luminaries, including a foreword by iconic Irish hat designer Philip Treacy and an introduction by Australian designer Leona Edmiston.
