Sopheak Seng, fashion editor of Lucire, is one of the judges for Wellington Cup Day’s Fashion in the Field. As a preview event, he will helm a mini-fashion show for the Cup’s barrier launch this Wednesday, January 22, at Midland Park, on Lambton Quay in Wellington, New Zealand.
The barrier announcement will commence at 10 a.m., and Seng will show labels including Rembrandt Suits, Cutler & Co., Miss Selfridge, Carlson, Crochetta, and Deryn Schmidt. All the fashion has come from Kirkcaldie & Stains, with whom Seng has worked closely for the show.
He follows this up with the Gazley Fashion in the Field event for the Trentham Racing Club’s Wellington Cup Carnival on Saturday, January 25, with the first race scheduled for 12.30 p.m.
Known for his styling ability and pushing the envelope to international standards, Seng says he is looking forward to judging. ‘Wellington is known for being very creative, and Gazley Fashion in the Field is the perfect opportunity for us to let those energies flow. I’m truly expecting to be surprised.’
The show is the first 2014 public event put on by Seng, after a hectic 2013 that saw him continue his work with actress Evangeline Lilly and helm the fashion and beauty departments for both print and online editions of Lucire.
