Speaking at the launch Kate said; “I am really looking forward to be involved with the Country Living Style event on RED MILLS Day at Gowran. This is always a great day’s racing and the perfect excuse to style the perfect racing outfit with a twist. This is a different take on the traditional ‘Best Dressed Competition’ and I’m excited to see lots of elegant country style. My tips are to be warm and comfortable and to embrace the country look.”

RED MILLS Ambassador Camilla added; “I love going racing and this event allows racegoers to have fun with their style on the day, while remaining comfortable and warm. We’re expecting similar outfits to what you might see at the Cheltenham Racing Festival – with lots of cosy fabrics, tweeds and fuss free headwear. It’s all in the detail for me, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for great accessories, subtle pops of colour and an outfit that stands out from the crowd on the day.”

Ailish Durkin, Online Channel Manager at said; “Since the opening of the RED MILLS Store in Cillin Hill we have enjoyed developing our range of clothing and footwear. Staying true to the RED MILLS story we have introduced some really beautiful equestrian inspired fashion brands, with everything from tweed blazers and wax coats, to designer handbags and jewellery.
