Melbourne Cup Day Fashions on the Field at Dubbo

Rose Black was the deserving winner of a $150 Whitney’s Jewellers voucher after being judged the Lady of the Cup.

Shelvin Narayan claimed the Gentleman of the Cup award and the $150 voucher for Sid’s Bottle Shop. 

Ms Black said she was delighted to be a winner against a very strong field of women.

“This is my first time back into fashions for about five years so I’m super excited,” she said.

“The ladies look great. I was looking at them and feeling very proud to be part of the Dubbo community. 

“They looked stunning and it just goes to show that the ladies in the west can do fashions just as well as ladies in the city.”

Mr Narayan said he didn’t have any intention of taking part in Fashions on the Field when he arrived but was nominated by the spotters.

“It was fantastic. The ladies all looked fantastic, I thought everyone was dressed up nicely,” he said.

“I don’t get the chance to dress up very often so I thought I would make the most of it.

“I organised what I was going to wear yesterday but luckily I have most of the gear at home.”
