History

The competition was first staged in 1962 in a bid to attract more women to the races, with the object of ‘finding the smartest dressed women at the Carnival within economic restraints’. There were initially three categories for ladies – for outfits that had cost £30 and under, and £50 and over; and a category for Most Elegant Hat.

During its colourful history, Myer Fashions on the Field has undergone many developments but the competition’s basic premise remains: an opportunity for the fashion industry to showcase its wares and for women,men, juniors and families to indulge in their passion for fashion.
