WHEN it came to the contemporary fashions on track, the biggest trend seemed to be a wedge heel and a sprinkling of studs for that touch of masculinity.

As the youngsters strutted their stuff in the Robin's Kitchen Contemporary Racewear, black was a common theme as were flowery fascinators.

The winner of the fashions on the field section however did not lean to any trend.

Donna Napier, a former Grafton girl who now calls the Gold Coast home, got her whole nautical inspired outfit from Kitten D'Amour in Brisbane.

“I always come down and get into the fashions. I wanted to have a bit of fun this year and this look seemed to be the look of the season, so I went with it,” she said.

Runner up in the Robins Kitchen Contemporary Fashion was Shannon Small.

The young Grafton girl managed to pull off the impossible, and picked up her entire outfit from op-shops around the Valley.

“I was just really glad I wasn't working today. I ride race horses and had to work yesterday,” she said.

Shannon's partner, Shaun Alexander, dressed to match her and managed to take out the runner-up gong in the Man to Man Best Dressed Gent.
