And the Melbourne Cup winner is…

It was another close race yesterday for the winner of the Myer Fashions on the Field ‘Design Award’. The panel of Judges, Nicola Finetti, Jacob Luppino, Anthony Pittorino, Anna Byrne, Kellie Hush, Craig Braybrook and Zandra Rhodes, decided on the design of Australian designer, Anthony Capon.

In true racing style, Capon focussed on the design of the hat – a clock displaying the start time of the Melbourne Cup race. It was supported by a white taffeta skirt, floral gold trimmings, white lace gloves and a spunky black cropped jacket, clinched by an ornate belt.

The delicate and playful ensemble impressed the judges, and Capon won a new Lexus.
