WHEN most people think of agriculture and fashion in the same sentence, striped shirts, Akubra hats and steel- capped boots come to mind.
There was everything but in the style pavilion fashion show over the last two days.
Dresses that wouldn’t look out of place at Royal Randwick or at dinner with Dame Edna were worn by women of most demographics.
Fashion parade co-ordinator Fiona Schofield was thrilled with the response from visitors this year.
She was also secretly impressed with many of the exhibitors and was tempted to give her credit card a good workout.
“It’s really interesting, we’ve had really good numbers at the parade,” she said.
“Some of the stall holders have been doing a sterling trade.”
Mrs Schofield was pleased to see a slight demographic shift in visitors. She said there had been a steady stream of younger women filling the stalls.
It’s not surprising considering the vast expanse of goods on offer, including fresh water pearls, tie-dyed dresses, scarves, boots and bags.
“The good weather is really helping,” she said.
“The highlight is always getting a good crowd and they’ve been a really good responsive and engaged audience.”
Mrs Schofield said for every fashion parade there had been about 150 people in attendance.
The last two shows will be held today at 11am and 1.30pm.
