The iconic Melbourne Cup Carnival Fashions on the Field competition came to a spectacular close on Kennedy Oaks Day after three incredible days of style were showcased in The Park at Flemington.

Breaking new ground this year, the prestigious style showcase welcomed racing and fashion enthusiasts from across the world to share in the glamorous spirit of the Carnival, with international digital entries accepted from outside Australia in the major Best Dressed and Best Suited categories as well as the creative led Lillian Frank AM MBE Millinery Award for the first time. Recognising up and coming talent, the popular Emerging Designer Award was also elevated, offering the trip of a lifetime to attend Paris Fashion Week.

Hundreds of stylish entries poured in across the globe, as a result of the expansion of the competition and the astounding suite of prizes on offer with a total prize pool of over $350,000.

The Victoria Racing Club offers its congratulations and thank you to the entrants, viewers and supporters of this year’s Fashions on the Field.
