Melbourne Cup is known as the race that stops a nation. The day is about celebration and vibrant colours. We wanted to outfits that had feminine lines with full skirts while remaining true to the spirit of the day.
A modern day Marie Antoinette out for Erin was inspired by the stunning shoes from Irregular Choice. The quirky design and hues gave a striking base for this outfit.
The cobalt blue fabric was a challenge to work into the curve of the pattern we chose. Both great elements however for future makes we would use a natural fibre for this pattern to be ensure the line around the bust sits flat.
