The two workshops will showcase fashion trends for both men and women.

Myer designer Leona Edmiston advises ladies to wear attire to suit autumn.

“Remember, ladies, to dress for the season; incorporate gloves and hosiery into your look and have fun with different textured fascinators drawing from felt, velvet and leather leave your straw fascinations at home until spring,” she said.

The designer said women should avoid wearing new shoes.

“Remember the races are about sophistication and elegance, ladylike dress is a must, and something I’ve learnt from experience is don’t wear brand new shoes,” she said.

Ms Edmiston also shared her thoughts on men’s trends.

“For men, conservative dress is important but don’t be scared to move away from charcoals and blacks and get adventurous with a textured look incorporating autumn hues,” she said.

“A camel suit can be teamed perfectly with deep colours like plum, burgundy and teal.”

Former Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundovic has been announced as a judge for a highlight of the Gold Cup Myer Fashion on the Fields.
