Riccarton Park NZ Cup & Show Fashion with Angela Stone 2015

Riccarton Park NZ Cup & Show Fashion with Angela Stone 2015


The perfect blend of entertainment, socialising, sunshine and of course, fashion, Riccarton’s Cup and Show Week is one of the most exciting events in the country. It is also New Zealand’s most fashionable week, with attendees wearing their finest in the hope of winning one of the many fantastic competitions.

I have been fashion coordinator of Cup and Show Week for several years now, and absolutely love the role. It is always one of my favourite events, and I look forward to seeing everyone dressed to the nines. The various contests are a fun opportunity to show off your personal style, and there are some great prizes up for grabs. This season it’s all about big, bold colours – I’m hoping to see some yellows, reds, and blues out there. Don’t forget your hat!
