With the spring racing carnival upon us what better time than to explore the world of fashionable head gear incorporating fresh flowers? Frida Kahlo was a front runner in this department with her simple yet effective use of flowers in her hair to achieve maximum wow factor.

Take a ‘leaf’ (or flower) out of these design ideas below and make a splash at the races this season…

Pretty in Pink

Carnations, hydrangea, pepper berry, roses…pretty enough to eat it!

A Little Avant-Garde

Stand out from the crowd with these avant-garde style statement pieces. Fluffy chrysanthemums, gerbera daisies, roses and orchids… Rich, jewel like colours, veils and bold make up make these absolute race day show stoppers!

Haute Couture Race Hats

Okay, the mask may be a little over the top for race day, but the exquisite incorporation of orchid blooms onto this headpiece is a standout. As are the blown roses in this ensemble designed by Philip Treacy for McQueen.

Fashion Forward Frida Kahlo

Braid and loop your hair up off your face and rock those flowers with attitude. Make it bold from the blooms to the jewellery, the make up and clothing.

One Flower En-Masse – One Big Statement

A dome of babies breath? I think Audrey Hepburn might have approved of this one.

These floral headpieces are pure works of art. Collaborate with Flowers for Everyone and your favourite milliner to create something that will turn heads and attract butterflies (okay, and maybe bees) this Spring Racing Carnival.
