Winner Interview - Murray Bridge Cup

A windy day at Murray Bridge didn't dampen any spirits for the 2016 Murray Bridge Cup, and certainly didn't stop some fashionable ladies and gentlemen from putting their best foot forward for Fashion at The Races.

It was a tough decision for the judging panel to make, but Melissa Barnes impressed with her bright Spring look. As a trained milliner, it's no surprise that she created her own headpiece for the day that matched Adornbeautifully with her outfit. You may have seen Melissa's Adorn Millinery creations at race days across the country, with her handmade pieces ranging from understated crowns, to fabulous fasincators. 












We spoke to Melissa after her win at Murray Bridge to find out more.

Congratulations on your win! Tell us about your outfit!

I bought my dress online and added the tassels myself. I made my own headwear, shoes from Miss Shop and my bag was from Witchery.  melissa 2
