It is this time of the year again, when excitement is running high, bets are being placed and the red carpet is being rolled out for everyone to show of the their latest fashion trends. Therefore, to stay in trend with the latest fashion and happenings, we here at CATA, are getting ready for the big Melbourne Cup, on the 3rd of November, by engaging in some hat and fascinator making activities. Using inspiration from magazines and past events, we all get to be creative.

Materials such as feathers, wool, fabrics, and tissue paper and off course head bands were used to experiment with different ideas and new constructs. Working as a big group, everyone had the opportunity to bounce ideas around, learn from one another, and help in perfecting one’s creations. Not to forget, everyone had a chance of the first test run, in showing of this year’s new and upcoming hat and fascinator trends here at CATA.
