The Winter Racing Carnival is upon us, and we know what that means for fashion lovers: you want to put together the perfect ensemble to turn heads and stand out in style. Everyone knows the most important part of your race day look is your headwear, which is why we’re sure you’ll be dying to adorn yourself with a unique piece from Sandy Aslett.
Sandy A is an award-winning milliner based on the Sunshine Coast who works with clients to produce one-of-a-kind fascinators, crowns, and hats, all designed with sleek lines and eye-catching details. Some of her more recent successes include:
She was a Top 10 Finalist for the 2017 Millinery Association of Australia Inc. awards; made the top 30 out of 250 entries worldwide for the The Great Hat Exhibition, which was showcased in London; and was the overall winner in the HATalk competition showcased at London Hat Week in March this year. With a record like that, your race day outfit’s focal point could not be in better hands!

The HATalk competition spanned three continents and received 177 entries for its two categories, Traditional Headwear and Modern Headwear. Sandy’s Cosmic Concertina design was the overall winner in the Modern Headwear Category, thanks to her use of non-traditional techniques and materials to create a daring and opulent piece. We especially love the use of waxed paper edged in gold, adding an old-world charm to a modern head piece!
Sandy’s entry for The Great Hat Exhibition, a luxe purple hat called Kakadu Lily, was then snapped up by the Patron of the Royal Ascot Racecourse for June 2018. Be amongst such prestigious clients and make your look for the races this year is a head above the rest as you pose with poise for Fashions on the Field.
