For those of you who don’t know what Ladies Day is let me introduce it to you. Ladies Day it is a day hosted in Beverley Race Course where you get dressed up to the 9’s and spend the day in the sun drinking Pimm’s and betting on horses. Women wear the most flamboyant yet fabulous dresses, accessorised with unique hats and fascinators and men attend in there best suits.
I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the St Stephens Style Marquee that was hosted in the middle of the racecourse. The free fashion show took place from 11:40 to 4:25 with a consistent flow of fashion shows showcasing the best outfits St Stephens retailers had to offer. The themes consisted of Prints of the Season, Statement and Evening wear so every occasion was covered in each show. With a tight schedule between race and fashion show a team of stylists, makeup artists and hairstylists worked away backstage ensuring everything ran smoothly.
The marquee was draped in white with modern chairs set up around the stage for attenders. The whole look of the clear-roofed tent was very modern and chic, it was so white it was almost impossible to see without sunglasses. Exhibitors set up their stalls around the marquee; What-A-Hat (a Bridlington based hat-hire company) had an amazing display of bespoke hats and fascinators. Local hairstylists from DeLacy Spa also worked behind the scenes and at their stall giving discounted hair-treatments to customers as well as selling salon-quality hair styling products.
Please take a behind the scenes look at some of the photo’s I took throughout the day and keep an eye out for tomorrow’s post on the fashion show and reviewing the amazing outfits that were featured! Thank-you for reading and don’t forget to follow!
