Wedding Florals
Right in the middle of the 2017/2018 wedding season we are surrounded by beautiful big florals everywhere we look
(including the Khayaam window, created by yours truly)

Recent wedding trends have moved toward less formal araangements with larger bouquets filled with less traditional flowers such as natives with waratahs, proteas and natural foliage like gum. These are often incorporated with pretty cottage flowers like dahlias, soft open roses and a resurgence of baby's breath. We are even seeing the inclusion of succulents in bouquets and floral wedding decor in an array of colours and sizes.

Fashion on the Field tips

Posted by on in Khayaam Salon


In the lead up to our Khayaam Ladies Day Luncheon at the Sale Turf Club next month, we have put together some tips for anyone thinking of entering Fashions on the Field. You can be inspired by our stunning judges and category winners from the event last year.

Ladies Day fashion is all about feeling and looking beautiful and women expressing themselves in a ladylike manner. Judges will be looking for style & originality as well as appropriateness of your outfit for the occasion.

Showing an understanding of current trends and interpreting them to suit your style will be a benefit as well as attention to detail, grooming and deportment.


Suggestions from Johnny Schembri and the VRC Member's Style Guide advises "In the grand tradition of horseracing, raceday style is always a key focus of the day. It is important to keep in mind that the races are a special day out and the Melbourne Cup Carnival, in particular, has strict guidelines for both ladies and gentlemen.

Some things to keep in mind are: not to wear short hemlines, steer clear of ‘spaghetti straps’ and wear appropriate footwear. Ultimately the races are about keeping within the codes, without letting them affect your personal style. Remember, it’s all about translating current trends into great racewear pieces by incorporating unique millinery choices and accessories.

Personally, I believe it’s important to start with your clothing choice then add headwear, accessories, your bag and shoes. This tends to make the outfit as a whole more cohesive and will ensure you are ‘raceday ready’ !"
