Fashion Show Event Management
Fashion show event management can be a daunting task. It usually requires a team of skilled event producers, to deliver a seamless fashion show. Instinct has been engaged by the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) for the third year to produce and deliver the “Fashions on the field” program, across all Melbourne Cup Carnival events, as well as some lead up event in other states.
VRC FASHIONS ON THE FIELD
Fashions on the Field (FOTF) is known as Australia’s largest outdoor fashion event. The event stimulates massive public and media interest prior to and during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The Victoria Racing Club introduced the competition in 1962 as an initiative to ‘woo more women to the races’. And since it has captured the public’s imagination and featured heavily in the press, growing rapidly in popularity. Changing the nature of racing forever.
This year marks the 3rd year Instinct has been appointed the event managers for Fashions on the Field.
