African Ladies Day Royal Ascot 2017-Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £6.58 million in prize money. Royal Ascot is synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by the dress code policy, which invites guests to contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right.
African Ladies Day Royal Ascot 2017 is back and I am elated to be part of the crew showcasing African fashion in all its colourful glory. We had too much fun attending the Royal Ascot yesterday. The theme for us was African Ladies Day Royal Ascot. What this meant was, everyone had to turn up in their best African print outfit.

Of course, we all know Ascot fashion is all about the hats and fascinators on display. While the Windsor enclosure does not require any formal dress code, the girls came out in style. Everyone looked sizzling in African inspired outfits from dresses, skirts, hats, ‘gele’, accessories in African print.
Women and men from all over the world came together to watch horse racing with the queen. The main focus for me was the hats. The glee, the screams, the laughter, the colours, the hats-small, large, perched to the side…The ladies day at the races is a wonder of its own everyone has to experience. A must see and must experience even once in a lifetime event.
Above I have added some of my fave images and outfits from the African Ladies day at the races 2017. It is fair to say everyone stood out in their own rights.
