The Melbourne Cup Event 2016

The most anticipated event of the year was back on November 1st 2016! Bigger and better than ever Suited Events presented ‘Suited - The Melbourne Cup Event 2016’

Suited Events know how to throw a Melbourne Cup celebration and this year we turned up the heat! Guests of ‘Suited - The Melbourne Cup Event 2016’ enjoyed the day’s festivities at the South Perth Foreshore, making this the largest scale event Suited guests had ever seen. The 2,000 guests were swept away with spectacular views of the Perth skyline as they sipped on champagne at the river’s edge.

Much like our guests, we like to make a statement and this year we took things to new Runway Show heights. The models strutted it out in front of guests in the 'Suited Events Melbourne Cup Runway Show presented by Medaesthetics' and took on a unique 15 metre high, three-level structure as part of a new bold catwalk production.

The three-level structure thrilled guests as the models climbed from level to level wearing gorgeous gowns by Headlining Designer Something Borrowed, stunning designs by up and coming Perth designer Jonté Designs and the hottest in accessories by Jessica Bratich. Of course it wouldn't be a Suited Runway Show without some serious suit inspiration bought to guests by renowned gentlemen's label MJ Bale!

International model Simone Kerr took to the stage as the official Emcee of the day and awarded the 'Medaesthetics Best Dressed Awards.' With the help of our Major Sponsor Dr Jadoon and Headlining Designer Mia Theodoropoulos the three picked the Best Dressed Lady and Gentleman! 'The Best Dressed Lady' was awarded with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and $500 gift card to renowned cosmetic clinic Medaesthetics and 'The Best Dressed Gentleman' was awarded with the ultimate gift bag by luxury gentlemen's brand, Aristokrat.

Guests immersed themselves in the social atmosphere as they were entertained by local Perth talent Kat Curnow and Astrid Ripepi, as they took to the stage with their 10 piece band and covered the best in classics. Later in the day an array of Perth’s hottest DJ’s played the best in R&B and house party tunes - which had the notorious Suited dance floor heating up as the sun went down.

Our stylish guests were treated to the best in hospitality with bars serving up some of the finest cup day classics, including the PIMMS Cocktail Bar and food stalls set up with tasty treats by Food Graffiti.

Guests of the Suited Exclusive VIP Area were enthralled in all that was stylish and sophisticated with a private bar and front row seats to the fashion shows. It wouldn’t be a Melbourne Cup event without the crowd favourite Louis Roederer serving up chilled glasses of champagne and this year Suited Events teamed with award winning AIX Rosé to bring guests the indulgent taste of rosé.
