[Talk] History of Melbourne Racewear

Hi all,

This Thursday I’m presenting an online talk for Glen Eira libraries:

The history of racewear is almost as long as the history of racing, and long before ‘Fashions on the Field’ was introduced in 1962, Melburnians were dressing mostly elegantly, sometimes colourfully, and occasionally wackily for these important annual events.

Join fashion historian Nicole Jenkins for an illustrated look at the impact of weather, fashion changes, and London models on our local culture.

Suitable for ages 13 and up. Free event and bookings essential.


What: History of Melbourne Racewear – an illustrated look at racing fashion with Nicole Jenkins.
When: Thursday, 20 October 2022, 7pm-8pm
Where: Zoom via your computer.
Cost: Free!
