5 Minutes with the Winner - Oakbank Easter Races

This year's Easter weekend was a big one for South Australian racing - and fashion - with 3 huge qualifying events for Fashion at The Races.

In the picturesque Adelaide Hills, Oakbank once again attracted tens of thousands for the annual Easter Carnival, including plenty of the state's most stylish. 

Standing out in red, Forreston local Nicole Hawkins won the Fashion at The Races competition in a beautiful Autumn racing look that impressed the judges.

With a love of horses and a very adventurous side to her, we want to find out more about Nicole... 

To win Fashion at The Races I wore: A Thurley dress, Shauna Caddy Millinery, Betts shoes and Lovisa Accesssories

I started coming to The Races: For as long as I can remember!

I couldn’t do a day trackside without: An amazing pair of heels.

The last time I entered Fashions at The Races: Was at Oakbank last year, and Swan Hill in Victoria.

My wardrobe looks like: Black, black and some more black!

The most embarrassing thing I’ve ever worn is: Something so bad I think I've erased it from my memory!

My favourite thing I own is: My Saint Christopher necklace - I never take it off!

What people might not know about me: I've recently taken up boxing as a sport and hope to have my first fight soon.

Weekends look like: I work most weekends, but I spend time in the gym, with my horses or with family and friends.

I love to indulge in: New activewear.

My kind of day out is: A day by the ocean, perhaps a hike along the cliffs and a swim to cool off.

My bucket list includes: Travel as far and wide as I possibly can!

I wish I could have a glass of bubbles with: Margot Robbie - a fan girl moment!

This year I am looking forward to: Climbing to Everest Basecamp in September.

I love The Races because: It's always a great day out! I love getting dressed up and the atmosphere is always really good fun.

Nicole has qualified as a State Finalist for the 2017/18 Competition, taking home $1,000 and a $200 The Daily Edited Voucher. To be sure you have a chance to win, make sure to dress your best at one of the next qualifying events. To see the full list of qualifying events click here
