Fashion Friday – New Talent – Natalie Edmonds Millinery

It is so exciting meeting new up and coming milliners and seeing their take on millinery.  With new milliners comes new ideas and today we would love to introduce you to Natalie Edmonds.

Natalie has been learning millinery since 2010 as she has a natural flare for creating and this would help build on her existing textiles and design skills.  Natalie said millinery was challenging and rewarding and there are always something new to learn.  “I’m always researching new styles, ideas, trends and enjoy following the domestic and international fashion houses to see how I can use my talent to suit my client needs.  Millinery also brings peace and order to my often crazy schedule.”

Natalie has participated in workshops with both domestic and international award-winning milliners as she loves building on her skill set and learning new techniques.  Her love has developed for specialising in race day headwear but is enjoying special pieces for mother of the bride/groom, cocktail parties and special functions.

It is with pride that Natalie is working hard for her first Spring/Summer collection to be released at the Thoroughbred Events’ Spring Racing Luncheon ‘exclusively”.  Her main focus is to produce designs and styles that will suit everyone – using beautiful Spring colours to enhance her millinery.

When it comes to making a headpiece Natalie is very much mood orientated.  “Sometimes I’m fascinated by a particular colour, fabric or texture or I will see a shape that I just want to block,” she said.

“I just let myself be guided by the process and enjoy blocking and making trims as I go, sometimes my original idea never eventuates and I end up with something far more magical- which is always rewarding.”

We are all be cheering Natalie on as she showcases for the first time.  Our guests are in a real treat.  Good luck Natalie and continue working on your dream!!!

Fashion Friday – Top Line-Up of Milliners Secured for Spring

While it is chilly outside, Thoroughbred Events Australia have been busy securing an amazing line-up of Milliners for their spring event.

Autumn 2018 Milliners

In what was the quickest response to date, all Milliners have been secured for our next event.  You will get to know all these Milliners over the coming weeks.

The venue is also confirmed and we are pleased that the Tattersalls Club are on board again for this exclusive luncheon.  With stunning huge windows overlooking Hyde Park and exquisite decor, this venue is ideal for TEA guests due to such grandeur.  With only a maximum of 80 seats, it will be open to regular attendees first then the public.

Each Milliner brings something new and exciting for Spring.  Between all the Milliners confirmed, you cannot count the number of awards won in total.  So at this event, it will be the people’s choice that will crown this year’s Milliner for Spring 2018 at The Spring Racing Luncheon.

Winner – Kerry McGlone – 2018 Autumn Millinery Award

Tickets will go on sale Monday 9 July for attendees who have previously attended, then to the public on Monday 16 July.

With french champagne being served while viewing the Millinery on arrival, this event most certainly is fit for a Queen.

2017 Fashion Friday – A Royal Luncheon, Our Next Event

Our next event has been booked
We are off to the
PARKROYAL Darling Harbour on Sunday, 5 March 2017
Don’t miss our largest millinery exhibition in NSW together with an exquisite lunch

We look forward to welcoming you all on Sunday, 5 March 2017 for our bi-annual millinery event. This event has certainly grown to a “MUST” attend event to secure your up and coming racing needs. With 12 milliners ready to exhibit their couture pieces, you will have the opportunity to discuss with them what suits you best.  Each milliner has their own certain style so we know there is something for you.  Best of all, you get to try the hats on ensuring the hat suits you.  You certainly can’t do that buying via the internet.  If you need a little twigging, our leading milliners are there to help you.

For this Autumn, we have returned to a beautiful hotel with exquisite food and a specially designed dessert banquet for our event.

The special guests are lining up.  But as you know we never reveal until closer to the event.

At our next event, I am very proud to also incorporate a new up and coming 100% made in Australian brand “Mother + joey“.  This look is great for our polo and show jumping crowd.

I will introduce more of our stars in the lead up to our event.

For now a very merry Christmas to all of you.
