Colours in fashion at Warwick Cup race day

BRIGHT and colourful is the way to dress for this year's Warwick Cup, as florals and fascinators look to be the popular choice for fashionistas ahead of Saturday's event.

Classic Dimensions owner Robyn Fraser said this year people were looking to little floral cotton outfits to wear to the Cup.

"We're seeing a lot of '60s and '70s belted styles," she said.

"Fascinators are well ahead of hats - we had to order in more fascinators in last week.

"There's lots of bright colours - very bright yellows and royal blues."

With large numbers expected at Saturday's Warwick Cup, the Classic Dimensions team has been busy.

"We've been supporting the races for many years," Mrs Fraser said.

"This year we've donated $500 in vouchers for winners in the various categories."

This year's Face of the Warwick Cup, Shelby Kinlyside, modelled a number of Classic Dimensions fashions in store yesterday, as Cup revellers made last-minute preparations for their race wear.

Miss Kinlyside said dressing up was one of her favourite things about the Warwick Cup.

"I think dressing up and getting out for a day with your friends is the best bit," she said. "It's really exciting - one of the biggest and oldest race days."
