A Broome-based fashionista had a big reason to celebrate at the Broome Turf Club’s Ladies Day meet on Tuesday, August 13.

Sylvia Ducarova beat out more than 30 women to take out the Kimberley regional heat of the WA Country Cups Fashions on the Field competition and win Best of the Locals in the process.

Ms Ducarova wowed the judges in a stunning blue ensemble, complete with a big eye-catching fascinator in true race fashion.

She said she did not expect to win the Kimberley heat in such tough competition.

“I had been planning this outfit since last year and I had put it all together with pieces from local stores, eBay and a bit of online shopping,” she said.

“Everyone was dressed so beautifully so to win the heat was definitely unexpected.

“I am also very proud of myself to have won the Best of the Locals as well and I hope I can do the Kimberley proud in Perth.”

Sophie Dunning was named the heat’s runner-up, while Jessica McPherson was second runner-up.

Ms Ducarova will then fly to Perth to compete in the WA Country Cups Fashions on the Field final at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday, November 30.

The winner of the final will take home a trip for two to London to attend the Royal Ascot with $10,000 spending money, and a $5000 Linneys jewellery voucher.
