Winter racing season is fast approaching, and with it comes a host of new-season trends. Spanning over four big weekends, this year’s Channel 7 Brisbane Racing Carnival is the perfect occasion to 
Make New Excitement and Make New Moments, mingle with friends and A-listers and take in all the glamour, food, entertainment and trackside action.

This season, expect to see a new take on all your favourite winter racing trends, as we swap straw boaters for felt pieces and experiment with bold accessories, deep jewel tones and lots of texture. Now is the time to experiment with your look. Bonus points for wearing a suit.

Whether you’re a keen punter, or just love the chance to dress up, these looks will ensure you’re a winner. It is time to make new history. Mark these dates in your calendar so you don’t miss a minute of the action.

Kicking off this year’s Channel 7 Brisbane Racing Carnival is KIRIN Doomben 10,000 Day on 12 May, where passion meets extravagance. Enjoy the splendour of this prestigious event with fashion and live entertainment.
