Racetrack Robes of France – 1920’s
My “Vintage Racetrack Robes” collection has evolved in France over a long time and I was recently spurred on by an expert in the field of racing events and fashions Briana Mott, from Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A. with her discussion on the subject of Fashion & Horse Racing. This was the authentic look for Ladies of France in the 1920’s. The images are from the journal Petit Echo de la Mode.
Surprisingly, I have been sitting on some pretty stunning garment views of exactly the fashions in France during this time. Hats, well you all have hundreds of these to play with, but these are a select few hat images of the past. A stylish NEW TREND?
White diamonds for the winning bet!

Tracking fashions of perfection…
Keeping the sun out of your eyes meant not missing a winner..
Family fun day out at the races.
A smart selection of Ladies dress.

The best red robe of the season!
