Over the past 56 years Myer Fashions on the Field has established its place as Australia's largest and most prestigious outdoor fashion event, attracting media attention and celebrity judges from around the globe.
The competition was first staged in 1962 in a bid to attract more women to the male dominated racecourse. Heats and finals for women, men, children, families, fashion designers and milliners now stretch across the four days of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Myer Fashions on the Field is staged in an impressive two-storey enclosure located in Flemington's renowned fashion and entertainment quarter; The Park. Situated on the hill behind the Flemington Grandstand, The Park is a playground of endless fun, fashion and frivolity. It features live music, stylish bars, and delicious food from some of Melbourne’s hottest eateries.
