BOLD, bright colours, tight tailoring and pretty prints will be front and centre when Griffith's Fashions on the Field hopefuls hit the catwalk this weekend.
Spring has sprung and with it comes the city's annual race meet, which will see Dalton Park packed with ladies and gents dressed to impress on Saturday.
With hoards of high-calibre prizes on offer this year, Griffith Jockey Club's Renae Wynne said judges were looking for top-class ensembles.
"Hopefully the weather holds up this year because it has been a bit cool the last couple of years," Ms Wynne said.
"But people need to remember it is a spring race meet so even if it is cool, they need to dress for spring."
This year, that means lots of bold, bright colours emerald, tomato red and navy are big while classic monochrome is a fail-safe option and leather and lace are still going strong.
Ms Wynne said classic tailoring was always a winner at the races and the flattering peplum frill remained a popular favourite.
The competition itself will be more on show this year, moving to the fence line.
"Hopefully that will draw a few more people over," Ms Wynne said.
"It will be good being right there in front of everybody."
Prizes this year include a $1250 travel voucher for Lady of the Day, a fine Merino wool suit for Man of the Day and a generous jewellery voucher for Couple of the Day.
Ms Wynne stressed contestants needed to be polished from head to toe and statement headwear usually added an advantage.
Gates will open for the Griffith Cup race day at 11.30 on Saturday morning, with the first race at about 1pm.
The free buses will leave the Griffith Visitor's Centre car park from 11.30am.
