What seperates Melbourne Cup Day from all other days in the Carnival.....The HEAD PIECES
Melbourne Cup Day is all about what's on your head, from beautifully crafted colourful fascinators to elaborately designed hats.
In the past, head pieces were extravagant and decorated with all sorts of embelishments such as feathers, beads and jewels, today they are more subdued but perhaps only slightly!
Melbourne’s expensive milliners, op-shops and other stores are busy selling hats and accessories in the lead up to Melbourne Cup Carnival and on the day itself, almost everyone can be found wearing some form of hat; whether it be craftily created self made hats made to celebrate the day or the more serious race goer who have diligently chosen their headpiece for this once a year event
