The first Ladies’ Purse Race was ran in 1846. Women from all over Hong Kong/China attend this prestigious hat wearing event and get dolled up for a day of fashion, fun, racing, beauty and gorgeous hats.

Every year the sponsor SaSa invite a Milliner to collaborate with a local Hong Kong fashion designer. This year the lead milliner was Piers Atkinson from the U.K. I had the opportunity to meet Piers and he seemed to really enjoy his time in Hong Kong including the lead up to the event and the fashion show on the day. Here we have some photos of Piers’s designs. Other photos included are a few of my clients in their bespoke hats, racegoers on the day and lastly winners of best dressed and best hat award in the SaSa corporate box.

I'm looking forward to seeing more style and elegance at the the Longines International Race on Sunday 13th of December at Hong Kong Jockey Club in Shatin. Last year it was a privilege to win the prize for elegance. Who knows this year it could be you in a gorgeous hat, bearing in mind of course that " Elegance is an Attidude".
Enjoy your weekend.
