Flemington Flashback: Maudie James, 1969

Today's #FlemingtonFlashback is to 1969 when British supermodel Maudie James joined us at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day to judge Fashions on the Field.

Maudie's iconic outfit, designed by the late Kenneth Pirrie and milliner Claire Furey, included a long chevron-patterned woollen coat, short-sleeved top, culottes, a belt and a cream felt hat.
