Hats off to technology
Melbourne Racing Club pays tribute to all of the 137 previous Caulfield Cup winners in the form of a 3D printed hat designed by UK based milliner, Gabriela Ligenza.
The hat is inspired by Gabriela’s text based poem design and combines the history of the Caulfield Cup with modern day millinery;
"Artisan and bespoke textiles have always been at the heart of what I do but working with 3D printing has allowed me to create what before was impossible within traditional millinery all over the world, from Royal Ascot in the UK to the Australian Spring Racing Carnival” Said Gabriela.
