Fashions on the Field

Fashions on the Field Competition presented by Jetts Fitness

Held in conjunction with Thoroughbred Day, Ekka’s second Fashions on the Field competition presented by Jetts Fitness saw a myriad of colour combined with Victorian elegance.

Splashes of colour reflecting the carnival atmosphere dominated the styles of this year, with references to the iconic Ekka ferris wheel and strawberry sundae on show.

Style and originality for the upcoming Spring Racing Season were at the forefront of judging criteria with many contestants displaying a unique flair in design and execution – with the Queensland Colonial Association taking pride of place in the special 2017 category ‘Best Victorian Period Piece’ celebrating 140 years of Show.

Similar to the competitions held at race days around the country, fashionable men and women were put through their paces by a panel of prestigious circuit judges across five categories:

  • Best Female Ensemble (18-40yrs)
  • Best Female Ensemble (40yrs +)
  • Best Male Ensemble
  • Best Headwear (Unisex)
  • Best Victorian Period Piece (Unisex)

The events’ total prize pool was valued at over $20,000, including Jetts Fitness memberships, NAK Hair gift packs, Rydges Fortitude Valley Accommodation, Bouquet Boutique flowers and Hat Academy and Victoria Park Golf vouchers.
