Spelly and I are both Melbourne girls – so for us the Melbourne cup conjures up memories of public holidays, participating in sweeps (as many as possible), screaming your horses name at the top of your lungs at a bbq and knowing that the favourite NEVER wins (except when it’s Makybe Diva). It is a day when Melbourne literally stops – dead in it’s tracks – to have a flutter.
So when the we were asked to be a part of an annual Melbourne Cup day fashion parade we jumped in feet first. Byron Bay based labels Spell, Goddess of Babylon, Buffalo Girl & Pooch and Samba dressed the gorgeous ladies who walked the catwalk.
Now, I’ve been to my fair share of Race Day fashion parades and I can tell you, I’ve never seen as many feathers, leather, turquoise and flowey-flowey gypsy fabric as I did today! There were feather head pieces, a tall spirit stick with dream catchers hanging off it and Shayna wore a cowboy hat! It really was our own ‘Byron Bay’ take on traditional race-day-attire.
Between us Spell and I won $4.

Most of the photos above are of models in Buffalo Girl dressed by Island Luxe. Also photographed models in Spell and Pooch & Samba. Full story on Common Ground Byron Bay HERE.
