Fashion in the Field 

Brought to you by...


A day at the races is just as much about the fashion as it is about the racing! And the Nelson Interislander Summer Festival Races is no exception with Fashion in the Field held on Sunday at the summer race meet in January each year.  Ladies and Gents are encouraged to dress up for the occasion and strut their stuff on the “Fashion in the Field” catwalk for the chance to WIN great prizes!

There are five categories:

  • Best Dressed Female at the Races
  • Best Dressed Male at the Races
  • Best Dressed Boy at the Races
  • Best Dressed Girl at the Races
  • Best Hat

Registrations will be taken at the Morrison Square marquee area commencing from 12.00 pm.

Fashion heats are held throughout the afternoon on a stage behind the Morrison Square marquee, with the public encouraged to view. The heats are shown LIVE on the Big Screen for the public on-course to see.  The finalists are judged by our Fashion Panel and later in the day in front of the main grandstand the winners are presented with amazing prizes.
