Fashion Friday – Autumn Racing Fashion Trend Alert

Autumn is fast approaching and FOTF ladies are busy planning their Autumn outfits. In Perth this means the iconic Karrakatta Plate Autumn FOTF competition at Ascot Racecourse on the 6th of April. Our West Australian Ambassador Bethany Brajkovich will be there to capture all the fashion and excitement of the day. Here are some tips for what is trending in FOTF this Autumn.

Silver is the new Rose Gold

As a self confessed clean metal girl Bethany is thrilled to see the return of silver to a fashion accessories. This Autumn you can quickly and easily incorporate silver through your accessories to get that on trend interpretation of current fashion trends which is crucial to puting together a winning outfit. Bethany says
“In previous years rose gold has dominated FOTF but it is firmly taking a back seat to silver and gold. The elegance of silver and gold make it so versatile to incorporate into our A/W FOTF outfits. Silver and Gold really pop against the darker and richer tones that we wear this time of year and accessories are so important in winning FOTF outfits.

Boots with skirts and dresses

At racecourses around Australia and New Zealand we are continually noting the incorpation of high end runway looks into racing fashion. Last year when Kerrie Carruci stepped out in the Milva Carruci custom design she put her best foot forward by adding these head turning red pointed boots from Tony Bianco which paired perfectly with this super cute red beret from ASOS. Bethany explains:

“Kerrie is always one to watch, as a fully qualified stylist we can all learn a thing or two from her. Always ahead of her time Kerrie has seamlessly blended on trend styling through the use of boots and beret with a stunning custom made Milva Carruci dress”.

Custom Designs

Thoroughbred Events Australia love to see women express their unique style through custom made outfits. Not only do these outfits make a great statement on the day but being a one off they create interest amongst the community and provide a great opportunity to make new friends by admiring and discussing the elements of their outfit. TEA Bethany Brajkovich has had some amazing outfits custom made in the past and says

‘I love getting a one off outfit made. I enjoy the creative process that allows me to include eclectic elements and merge them seamlessly into a complete look. Previously I’ve worked with both designers and dress makers and find it to be a exciting experience for both of us. One of my favourite memories is going to the track with other ladies who were all wearing custom made outfits from award winning Perth Designer Only One Ashley. We all felt so special and so unique, it was a wonderful experience from start to finish.’

“As the Perth based TEA Ambassador I’m am so excited to see what you will all be wearing this Autumn”
