The fashionistas will be out in full force at Gowran Park on the 17th February for the return of the annual Red Mills Race Day and Style Event. Connolly’s Red Mills have sponsored this much loved race meeting for over 40 years, and the Style event which was added in recent years is a wonderful opportunity to get all dolled up and be in with a chance to win some pretty amazing prizes.
Hosted by stylist and presenter Marietta Doran in the Style Quarter at Gowran Park, visitors can enjoy fashion shows, style advice and the Red Mills pop-up shop where you can shop ‘til you drop.
This Red Mills Day, we will have three prizes up for grabs for our Best Dressed Competition. Best Dressed Lady, Runner up, 2nd Runner up and Best Dressed Gentleman.
Best dressed award is open to all ages and all genders, so come along and try your luck!
Open to ladies and gents of all ages, this year’s guest judge –singer/songwriter and all round stylish gent - Jake Carter will have his work cut out choosing this year’s winners and runners up – especially given the impressive turn out at last year’s competition.
The judges will be on the lookout for winners who are both super stylish and appropriately dressed for the time of year. Last years winner Sarah Cass wore a showstopping electric blue coat from Shrimp London paired this with a velvet dress from Serendipity boutique in Kilkenny, a headpiece from Marc Millinery, and ‘Sex in the City’ inspired shoes from Arnotts. Her stunning choice of colour and fabric textures, with a unique mix of velvet, wool, fur, satin and a touch of bling really impressed both Nathalie and fellow judge, stylist Marietta Doran
We are delighted to announce that this year's Best Dressed judge will be singer/songwriter and all round stylish gent - Jake Carter! Jake will be working with the assistance of Style MC Marietta Doran to choose the Best Dressed Lady and Gent on the day.
