Growing up, The Melbourne Cup carnival was the event on the social calendar. The TV coverage would be on all day and this is when I remember my first experience watching the girls walking the runway in the Fashions on the Field competition. The year I remember most, was when RMIT student, Sarah Schofield took out the prize. She was wearing an amazing unique black and white ‘pick up stick’ fascinator and had this beaming smile… she looked like an ad in Vogue.
A budding fashion student aspiring to study at RMIT, I thought I want to be that girl one day!
