Milliners and fashion designers from all age groups were invited to submit Ascot themed outfits made from recycled and unwanted materials e.g. from charity shops and household recycling to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Ascot Racecourse.
The judging will be taking place on Saturday 26th March at 1pm. The judges will be looking for outfits that are creative, relevant, eye-catching and innovative, capturing the essence of a day at Royal Ascot.
The shop unit will be opened between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 26th March so that shoppers can have a closer look at the entries.
Ascot Racecourse have offered some spectacular prizes including the opportunity to have the overall winning design displayed in one of the prominent window display cases during Royal Ascot.
Steph James, Maidenhead Town Manager, said 'The standard of the entries received has been fantastic and we have been really pleased that we have had entries from a range of ages'.
Jane Wright, Nicholsons Shopping Centre Manager, added 'The creativity on show has been outstanding and has added a real buzz to the empty unit'.
John Blake, Head of Sales and Marketing at Ascot Racecourse added, ‘We are delighted by the creativity expressed and the effort put into the exhibits by all entrants. None of the designs would look out of place at Royal Ascot’.
