Hi I’m Milano.
I’m a racing fashion blogger who has been immersed in the world of Fashions on the Field since 2011.
After four years of developing my own personal racing style, putting together and designing race day outfits, and entering numerous FOTF competitions, I started this blog; a place to share tips on dressing, DIY projects, opinion pieces, photos, FOTF calendar and race day updates.
My goal is to create a supportive community of likeminded women who are just as obsessed with racing fashion as I am. In the Field Fashion Community Facebook Group, you can join our 3,500+ members where we share ideas, ask for advice and show off our creations.
I want to inspire women who are just starting out and are still learning the ins and outs of racing fashion. Stick with me and I’ll show you how to put together the perfect outfit with your own personal touch.
In 2017, my struggle to find the right millinery led me to create Millinery Market, an online platform where you can rent or buy over 1,500 hats from milliners and race enthusiasts. My goal is to make beautiful, handcrafted millinery accessible to the everyday race goer, while providing a platform for milliners to showcase their work to a wider audience.
These days I can often be seen on the other side of the catwalk as a Fashions on the Field judge. I judge large city events such as Viva Prix de Fashion, but I also like to visit rural parts of Australia to support our small country race clubs.

Because sometimes us girls need a little attention…
It’s always exciting to open a newspaper and find a photo of yourself in there.
Thanks to Fashions on the Field I’ve had the chance to be featured in a number of newspapers including The Australian, Gold Coast Bulletin, Courier Mail, Sunday Mail, Herald Sun and Ladies in Racing magazine.
The highlight so far has been making the front page of the Brisbane News magazine in 2016.
