Brisbane Racing Club Fashion Committee

 

The Brisbane Racing Club Fashion Committee was established in 2014 as an initiative to maintain and improve the running of Brisbane Racing Club’s fashion events.

Since then, the Brisbane Racing Club has continued to evolve its Fashions on the Field competitions and non-racing fashion events to see them become highly anticipated events on the Brisbane fashion social calendars.

The committee comprises of volunteers identified as being a key influence in fashion and racing in Brisbane who are passionate about fashion, racing, and building relationships with like-minded people.

The Brisbane Racing Club Fashion Committee continues to assist the Club in raising the fashion profile of the local Fashions on the Field events.

We are proud to introduce the talented volunteers of the 2018/2019 Fashion Committee.

Meredith McMaster, Fashion Committee | Brisbane Racing Club

Meredith McMaster
Co-Chairperson

Meredith is the owner of Meredith McMaster Millinery. Meredith's millinery journey started some 18 years ago just as a hobby and completed her Cert 4 through TAFE. Deciding that millinery was more than a hobby she furthered her education by attending forums, workshops and intensive classes with ‘millinery greats’ both from Australia and overseas. Meredith had been working in sales and marketing at Proctor & Gamble for 20 years when she made the decision to leave that and pursue millinery full-time, a choice she is glad to have made. Meredith loves the creativity and social environment of Fashions On The Field.
