Australian culture, Derby style party

Every resident of Australia knows what happens on the first Tuesday of November. When the northern hemisphere of our planet is preparing to celebrate the winter Australia celebrates one of the most colorful events of the spring - the Melbourne Cup - the world famous horse races at Flemingon in Melbourne, Victoria. 
The official holiday, thousands of Melbournians with families, children and friends rush to the racetrack - bet, participate in children's parties, tastings, watch concerts and participate in contests. For women of all ages it is a special day at the racetrack, which some have prepared in advance - the Melbourne Cup is famous for fashion on the field, contests of hats and dresses, which any visitor can take part in. The Fashions on the Field were introduced specifically to attract the attention of the ladies to jumps.

For women is an unspoken rule to appear on the racetrack in the headdress - hat, flower, hair ornament or “fascinator”. 


Carnival Fashion at Flemington includes Derby Day - the most stylish and classic fashion show, which prescribes the rule to appear on the racetrack elegantly dressed in white and black color scheme. 


To participate in the Derby day celebration of fashion you don’t have to go to Australia - arrange a derby party at home. Decorate your home, invite your friends and family, asking them to come in black and white clothes, drink champagne, eat strawberries and snacks and you can even place bets on the internet! Great excitement guaranteed!
