Also known as Ladies Day, Oaks Day is all about fashion (oh and a few horses!). Held at Flemington Racecourse on the Thursday following Mebourne Cup this is also the day Fashions on the Field contestants are judged and winners are announced. Better look your best then!

The official Oaks Day flower is the pink rose of course! From the palest hint of blush to the most vivid magenta, take it your way. A floral fascinator adorned with pink roses and the right foliage can be as daring or refined as you are.

So will you be pretty in pink this Oaks Day? I’d love to know if your style is edgy and modern or feminine and frilly – either way the perfect accessory is fresh flowers, and your own custom made blooming couture is just a phone call away.
