National Competition

The Womens Racewear competition was first staged in 1962 with the intention of finding the smartest dressed women at the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

During its colourful history, Myer Fashions on the Field has undergone many developments and this year the competition will enter the digital age, with a photo-based competition for contestants outside Victoria. 

Whilst the new and modernised format will reinvigorate the iconic Myer Fashions on the Field, continuing the tradition of the competition is paramount for the Victoria Racing Club and Myer and the competition’s core purpose remains a celebration of fashion and racing.
