Fashion Fabulous’s Tracy Rose created a special piece of millinery for Royal Ascot’s First Day entitled  “Jockeys in Motion Hat” .

It follows on from her “Wave” series and is the most elaborate one to date. It is an abstract hat inspired by the jockeys satins racing at high speed at Ascot. Vibrant tangerine, lemon, pink and turquoise satins whoosh through this millinery creation to fabulous effect.

More and more we are seeing women dressed as a group in co-ordinated outfits that take months of planning. Blue and reds were very popular colours for  women! Whilst men adorned their morning suits with brightly coloured waistcoats. Tracy Rose (far left) wore  her “Millinery in Motion” Hat featuring cobalt blue, yellow and pink satin. The hat creates the vivacious illusion of movement. Tracy Rose was the first hat designer to create millinery in motion.
