These days everyone in Melbourne is feeling the touches of spring. Be it the warmth of the sun, the bright colours of the flowers, or even by the increased number of hay fever tablets being sold. One thing that always captures the atmosphere of Melbourne’s Spring time has to be the Spring Races. A mix of horse racing and delightful hairpieces, the Spring races heralds the beginnings of the new season and highlights exciting fashions.
Fashion at times may seem all too temporary and style passes all too quickly. But there is just something wonderful about a well chosen suit or a classic dress, something about the way that colours of a skirt just seem to evoke a field of flowers. Fashion can surprise and delight in the best of ways, especially when a beautiful pink outfit is completed with a gorgeous feathery masterpiece, or when a dress is sleek and clean and one accessory can just complement the whole look by standing tall and making a statement.
That’s what fashion is all about, making a statement, having fun and expressing yourself with great joy and confidence. There’s nothing better than seeing an individual wear something that catches your eye and makes you smile. We loved all the fashions at the Spring Races, they really tickled our eyes and we felt that there was just so much fun and creativity with every outfit. We’re excited to bring out our favourite spring dress and start shooting in the flowers.
