The forecast might have said rain, but Flemington Racecourse turned it on for a beautiful spring day. True to Derby Day tradition, guests came out in black and white to cheer on the horses and enjoy the beginning of the long weekend.

The ladies embraced classic boaters and berets with mesh masks this year. And men wore top hats and in some cases elaborate fascinators.

It was nice to see women change it up in sophisticated suiting with voluminous details seen in flares or ruffled sleeves.

Our photographer Michael Woods was there to capture it all.
