With our Christmas and New Year’s Eve soirees well and truly over, we can now focus our full attention on some of our favourite summer events. Namely, racedays at Ellerslie Racecourse. If you haven’t experienced the excitement of being trackside with Auckland Racing Club, then you need to get along to Vodafone Derby Day on 3rd March to witness the action - and the glamour - of a day at the races.
As well as experiencing the excitement that can only be felt when a throng of thoroughbreds gallops past, Derby Day is the perfect excuse to dress to impress. We’ve given you a head start on pulling together a glamorous Derby Day look with our gallery of stunning ensembles, sure to turn heads.
Don’t have tickets yet? It’s not too late. Grab yours, here. Also, make sure you either enter Viva Prix de Fashion for your chance to take home the $15,000+ prize package, or head along to watch the competition play out on the runway on the day. For more information about this national Fashions in the Field final, head over to the website, here.
Remember, Derby Day is all about formal glamour with the dress code tending towards black and white, in keeping with international tradition. We say - go all out, dress to the nines and make a day of it.
