For the last 2 years I have had the pleasure of being Illustrator in Residence for the Australian Turf Club, held at Royal Randwick and Rosehill Gardens. I spend the afternoon illustrating all the beautiful fashions trackside at the Fashion Chute, which as of recent has been sponsored by Harrolds Australia.
The day usually begins with an impromptu photo shoot with my colleague (and partner in crime) Alexandra Nea, followed by 4-5 hours of intense illustrating of guests. The Fashion Chute usually features a set of key dress codes usually dictated by the race event on that day and entrants never cease to amaze and awe with their incredible outfits, in some cases homemade!! (These receive extra points in my books, being a designer myself).
