Derby Day 2017 – Schweppes and Sensis Marquee
Derby Day is my favorite day of spring carnival ( even thought dress code is monochrome and I am as you know a lover of colour). It is when the fun begins and the atmosphere is electric – everyone is dressed to impress and ready to back a winner. Let’s not forget there are horses racing after all lol
The infamous birdcage is where it is all happening – fashion, glamour and fun! Even dreadful weather didn’t stop the race goers from rocking their amazing frocks and enjoying the day.
This year I got an opportunity to attend Sensis Digital and Schweppes marquees. Both offered exquisite food, cocktails and entertainment. Natalie Embruglia and Kylie Auldist performed at Sensis Digital marquee and Schweppes bar turned up the music with awesome dj’s and numerous celebrity appearances.
Another reason why I enjoy this day so much is because it is a great opportunity to catch up with my Melbourne peeps and fellow bloggers. But of course we are all there for fashion and to spot the trends that we will then follow the entire season.
I can only call myself lucky to have met Danica Erard – the founder of an iconic Australian millinery and the fact that I got to wear one of her creations to an event like Derby day is mind blowing! Isn’t this crown a masterpiece! And Danica is an absolute sweetheart meeting her was a real highlight of my day.
