A Look Back: Auckland Cup Week '16 March 21 2016, 0 Comments

It has been an extremely busy few months for us here at the Natalie Chan atelier (weddings and races galore!), and Auckland Cup Week at Ellerslie was the pinnacle of our high peak season. Here we take a look back at the week that was...

The team at Derby Day, from left we have workroom assistant Frances, fashion stylist Sopheak, boutique assistant Helen, Natalie, our friends Alice and Jessica, and bespoke stylist Yvette. We are all wearing Natalie Chan millinery.

Colette (contestant no.33) is a dear client of ours, and here she is wearing a bespoke creation with her fabulous dress.

We loved the way media personality Anna Reeve styled her Natalie Chan hat with her chic sunglasses and black dress.

Gracie was MC for the Viva prix de Fashion competition and did a wonderful job, here she is wearing our lace ears with a capped mask.

Fashion stylist Michiko is wearing our 'Marilyn' headpiece in black.

Sophie is wearing our black 'Volando', Joy is wearing our blush mini 'Ingrid', Élite is wearing our silver 'Blissful Beauty' and Sybelle is wearing our black 'Veronica'

On to Cup day, the gorgeous Tatiana is wearing a bespoke millinery design.

The lovely Joy (in fuchsia) and Karyn (in navy) both wearing pieces from our 'Postcards from Paris' millinery collection.

Louise in the center is wearing our black 'Gloria' headpiece.

Ever so stylish here is Gracie wearing a bespoke headpiece for her MC duties for the Viva prix de Fashion competition on Cup day.

Natalie, Sybelle, Tatiana, Élite and Joy wearing Natalie Chan creations.


And that's a wrap. We absolutely loved everything about cup week, the hospitality, horses and of course hats! 


Until next time,

The Natalie Chan girls
