Myer Millinery Award 2021 Fashions on Your Front Lawn

I created the hero piece for my Laceby Spring Collection titled "With Love from Laceby" for the 2021 Myer Millinery Award as part of the Cup Week Fashions on Your Front Lawn hosted by Flemington Racecourse. 

Due to restrictions in Victoria as a result of COVID19 the competition took to an online format again and milliners were invited to submit an entry for the Fashions on Your Front Lawn competition. 

My piece is a shape that floats across the face offering a playful mystery to the wearer.  It has shaped tails that move around the face and dance into the sky.  The sweeping shape embraces and reflects the undulating landscape of the countryside near Laceby and the graduated edges provide a delicate and gentle finish.
