And so it began, the Melbourne Cup Carnival for 2014! Yesterday was Derby Day, when a sea of black and white monochrome washes over Flemington and so it did, in fine form despite the miserable, windy and cold weather. Just like the years before, I was lucky enough to be amongst the finest in the exclusive Birdcage and my favourite of all would have to be the Lexus Design Marquee. This year, the design was just as sleek as ever but with a softer, natural and nurturing feel. The sleek catches you at the door as you are greeted by the most luxurious Lexus NX sedan in chrome. The softness welcomes you with a glass of champagne as the wait staff were dressed in pastel Country Road. The natural was the amazing Joost Bakker floral and branch installation seen throughout the marquee and upstairs, sits as a canopy over the guest enjoying the fine dining experience of Attica. I enjoyed a Neil Perry burger (or two) at the pop up burger stall and polished it off with an ice-cream from the gelati stand.
Amongst the guest were some of our favourite fashion people from Margaret Zhang, Pip Edwards, Kate Waterhouse and Henry Holland. Celebrities included The real housewives of Melbourne, The Block brother winners, Jamie Durie, Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkins and so many more fabulous people. I had such a great day in Lexus and I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the week they have install for us!
