Each year we look forward to the hustle and bustle in and around Cheltenham with the iconic Cheltenham Racing Festival. Being based in the heart of this Gloucestershire town, we are looking forward the race goers fashion parade filling our streets, with timeless tweed jackets, exceptional hats, beautiful ladies’ day dresses and traditional tailoring.
This renowned racing festival dates back to 1902 where the National Hunt Racing was first held at Cheltenham Racecourse. Thirty-three years later this event was named Cheltenham Festival where the National Hunt Committee added the Champion Hurdle and Cheltenham Gold Cup races to the festival, events which are attended by thousands each current year.
This March, we see the return of this event and we are sharing our latest race ready jacket and looks that celebrate the famous Ladies Day at its finest. Find inspiration on how to style these looks with our exceptional pieces from our latest range.
