Blow away those winter blues --
it s time to dress up and party.
The Dargaville Town Hall will
be ablaze with colour and fashion
when Polwarth Design models
strut their stuff on the catwalk at
a special fashion show to celebrate
Melbourne Cup Race Night.
Fashion is a huge part of race
day and the team at Polwarth
Design plan a night to remember
when their models parade some of
the latest spring fashion.
There ll be cocktail raceware,
wedding and special occasion
attire -- and the Melbourne Cup is
the ultimate special occasion,
Karen Matich, co-owner of Pol-
warth Design says.
Karen says the shop is famous
for its fashion shows and there
will be about 40 different outfits
paraded on the night to suit all
shapes and sizes.
The team at Polwarth Design
wants everyone to get dressed up
for the occasion.
Prizes will be awarded for the
best dressed male and female
(Fashion in the Fields) and
there ll also be prizes for those
whose dress reflects a certain era.
The whole table can dress up
in an era if they want, Karen
Jo Duder says people are sick of
winter and with spring just
around the corner, it s the perfect
time to dress up and have fun.
To be in for the Fashion in the
Fields best dressed prize, fill out
an entry form at Polwarth Design,
phone 09 439 7341 or email your
