My name is Belinda and I am passionate about racing fashion.
How often do we get the chance to wear lady-like hats and gloves! I love the challenge creating a race day "look". It's not just the dress that makes an outfit fabulous; it's the accessories as well. The hunting and gathering of bits and pieces - so much fun. I especially love scrummaging through second hand shops.
At the start of 2015, I was browsing Instagram and admiring the beautiful ladies at an Australian race meeting. Their headwear was incredible; the colours and styles - wow! I'm a creative person and there are many evident projects around our home. I thought to myself; I want to give that a go - I want to create racing fashion headwear.
During 2015 I attended millinery training in Brisbane and trained with Waltraud Reiner of Melbourne whilst she was visiting Monika Neuhauser in Pirongia. I hope one day I will have enough expertise to live this passion - quit the day job! Watch this space!
