To celebrate our collaboration with Morphettville and Katya Komarova, we pulled together our favourite looks from local designers and boutiques that we would love to wear to the races!

Oaks Day
Traditionally a day of pastels, if you’re like Mel and don’t like wearing anything floral and pink you can opt for a feminine cut, monochrome dress. Kristen however loved this floral Liza Emanuele dress, which went perfectly with her lace Katya Komarova headpiece.

Mel wears Liza Emanuele 'Bella' dress in black, Katya Komarova 'The Bow' headpiece and ______ 'Helium' shoes in black. Kristen wears Liza Emanuele 'Lucy' dress, Katya Komarova 'Lace Headband 2' and ______ 'Heather' shoes in blue.

Melbourne Cup
This is the time to bring out your craziest and most colourful race wear! Over the top hats, dresses and patterns are always encouraged on Melbourne Cup, and Couture+Love+Madness do stand-out and unique designs like no other. This season delicate gold crowns and headpieces are a massive race trend, but whether you want to go big and traditional or modern and minimalist, Miss Martini have a huge selection of gorgeous headwear and accessories perfect for the races.races6

Derby Day
The sleekest and sophisticated of the Spring Racing Carnival events, Derby Day is when racegoers get to whip out their sharpest black and white gear. This monochrome day is anything but boring however, with the simple colour theme allowing people to play around with textures, silhouette and structure, like these Something Borrowed dresses that are anything but simple. Another massive millinery trend this season is flower headpieces, and we’ve chosen two unique floral pieces from Sylvy Earl to tie together our outfits.
