AAMI Victoria Derby Day
The first day of the Cup Carnival, Derby Day is a completely monochrome affair with attendees either wearing a black-and-white mix or one-tone outfits. This is a day for classic elegance and time to absolutely let the details of your dress become the statement of the day. Headpieces are a must, think traditional: a wide-brimmed hat or chic headband.
