Spring Racing: How Fascinating
We all know that a fascinator is a perennial statement must-have for the Spring Racing season. But why?
According to Melbourne based milliner, Richard Nylon, “Racing was called the sport of kings for good reason. It is an expensive sport, so people who could afford to stable, look after horses and pay for people to ride them had a lot of money."
"With money goes prestige, with prestige goes fashion and back then, with fashion went hats. It became a way for a lady to display her status and fashionability."
Fast forward to today and it is still a firm tradition in the racing scene. And as fashion evolves, so does the style of hats; from fascinators, to tiaras, to floral headbands, to hairpieces.
Stand out from the crowd with these affordable attention-stealing headpieces that are currently available at Fashion Spree.
