Melbourne Cup Turn heads on race day

Spring Racing Season is here and what better way to complete your outfit than with a stunning headpiece? Brenda Treasure from LilyM Hats has recently launched a brand new Hinterland studio and showroom to complement the Brisbane outlet and Hong Kong based sourcing centre. She brings decades of experience to help create beautifully bespoke hats and headpieces guaranteed to enhance any race day look. “Lots of headpieces with wirework will be seen this season, with bursts of flowers made of leather and fabrics,” says Brenda. A headpiece that complements the complete outfit is always a winner. Think about colours matching and even consider incorporating pieces of the outfit fabric into the headpiece. It is always worth taking into account the design of the fabric. Does it have stripes, flowers, beading? Then try to incorporate those features into your hat or headpiece. If you plan on entering ‘Fashions on the Field’ – think something totally different that has never been seen before. Remember to consider the complete outfit, not just the clothes and headpiece, but also all the accessories, shoes, gloves and how you wear your hair. Boaters are back this year, but with the added twist of incorporating appliqués. Fancy headbands, crowns and tiaras are also set to be big again this season. Let Brenda design a unique piece that will turn heads, or book a group class to learn to make your own. For more details, visit or like their Facebook page or contact Brenda on 5494 9299 or 0419 511 799. Barbara Richardson & Brenda Treasure from LilyM Hats in race day attire
