Spring racing carnival outfits are a bit of a big deal, with many folk opting to buy fancy frocks and matching headwear pieces to wear specifically for the occasion. Jess Colman challenged the common notion of buying a new dress for the races, and instead put together an outfit using clothes already in circulation.
Jess pieced together an outfit for her friend Victoria Jancke, using items purchased at Savers recycle superstore, reworking them into something far more unique than your every day off-the-rack frock.

Victoria entered this year's Fashions on the Field wearing Jess's reworked design, and featured in the Herald Sun's best dressed photo gallery as an outfit that stood out from the crowd.
Let's hope Jess Colman's design inspires others to refashion outfits to wear to the races in years to come!
