Looking forward to the upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. A fabulous week long event of glorious fashion, champagne and of course racing. Can't wait! Adore the fabulous Jean Shrimpton who caused a sensation at the 1965 Victoria Derby wearing a white shift dress designed by Colin Rolfe which ended 10 cm (3.9 in) above her knees. She wore no hat, stockings or gloves and wore a man's watch, which was unusual at the time. Shrimpton was unaware she would cause such reaction in the Melbourne community and media.
