At Feather & Noise we started a tradition in 2016 to launch our first ever Spring Racing Campaign!  We had an absolute blast planning and rolling it out! SO naturally 12 months later we wanted to up the anti and launch an even bigger and better campaign!  And, ... well that was what we did!

 

 

 

Spring Racing with F+N this year featured 11 incredibly talented, kind, funny and STUNNING women.  Women that our business call both Insta buddies but also 'friends', women that I have personally admired and loved following their personal and professional journeys for many years now!

 

So along with myself & these ladies that seriously turned heads all.day.long at the Werribee Mansion, we gathered together to showcase 22 beautiful outfits! YEP, a mammoth collection of Spring / Summer looks! Perfectly styled head to toe by our in house and incredibly talented stylist; Jess Lee.

 

 

 

 

 

It's safe to say fashion has always gone hand in hand with the Spring Racing Carnival. This season sees racegoers embrace bold prints and bright colours, lots of lace and textures, the classic midi leg length F+N is known for that shows off just the right amount of leg, a splash of off the shoulder-skin-goodness to show off your sun kissed tans, AND our very fave pant options being available with culottes in plain or prints and the stand out full length, wide leg 'Botanical Jumpsuit' ... OH what's not to LOVE!

 

We adore nothing better than creating a spectacular display of personality, style and sophistication! All while keeping a budget in mind! You know, so you can buy not just one outrageous piece that you'll never wear again, but rather 1 or 2 or even 3 timeless pieces which will take you through race season and into wedding season, Christmas parties, winery tours, cocktails with the girls and BBQ's with friends and family! 

 

 

 

 

Regardless of whether you’re planning a social day out trackside or heading to friends for a BBQ to celebrate the races this season, we have designed a collection which will provide you with the perfect opportunity to dress and feel your best. From head to toe (yep, we are not just saying that - we literally have the biggest range of headwear and luscious leather footwear!) We’ve got all the latest fashion trends and tips covered to help you get races-ready this Spring Racing season!  My hot tip; purchase your leather heels early, give them a test run out and about prior to your 12-hour day at the races!  

 

Snap up a boater hat to see you through ALL Summer long and don’t be afraid of the all new cane & straw trend in bags which is a huge look this season. Your inner boho babe in you will have all your friends envious of your latest bag purchase! Oh, and if it's present shopping you had in mind for your bestie or that perfect Christmas present for the gal that has EVERYTHING, then you can't go past the genuine leather suede clutches in the most divine colour palette! The tassel keyring included will have your friend bouncing off the walls with excitement!
