A mecca for millinery and fashion on Ladies Day, the Best Hat & Most Dapper Gent competition takes place at the g hotel & Spa on Thursday 01st August. With a prize fund of €5,000, this is a must-do event for your racing calendar.
Milliner to the Royal Family and the stars, Phillip Treacy designed and created the stunningly sophisticated, 5-star g hotel. Ladies Day at the Galway Races is the most stylish showcase of high-end fashion and eye-catching Millinery in Ireland. The g hotel’s annual best hat competition and most dapper gent have become the most sought after Milliner and Fashion titles within the racing fashion scene. A massive €5,000 prize fund which includes a bespoke creation by Elizabeth Creative Design Bespoke Headpieces and Bridal Millinery is up for grabs at the leading 5-star Galway City hotel.
Aoife O Sullivan, who was crowned Miss Ireland 2018 won ‘Best Hat’ at last year’s event and will return this year to judge the competition alongside Ireland’s leading Fashion Editor Bairbre Power of the Irish Independent. Together, they will review what is guaranteed to be a glorious array of high-end fashion and stunning, bespoke millinery. Once the winning hat is decided, the lucky individual will be crowned with an exclusive bespoke creation from Elizabeth Creative Design in Cork. Tina Coyne of Elizabeth Creative Designs is no stranger to the g hotel’s best hat competition having won last year and she’s also well recognised at the Galway Races, featuring in the top 10 hats at Ballybrit since 2016.
The most dapper gent will also receive an amazing prize, including a Strellson branded suit, shirt and tie with Gordon Brothers shoes from Hanley & Co here in Galway. Hanley’s are synonymous with the best designs, cuts, labels, and brands for men in Galway. Both winners will receive luxury stay vouchers at the luxurious 5-star g hotel and spa. The best hat winner will also receive a €1,000 cash prize as part of the g hotel’s prize fund.
