Ladies Day Goodwood Revival

Posted by Jen on 08/08/2012 in Goodwood Revival |

As we have briefly discussed in previous blogs, one event we love is Ladies Day at Goodwood Revival. So this year we will be attending Ladies Day.

Goodwood Revival is as much about dressing up and fancy dress as it is about cars, so it’s no surprise that they are the only motor sport event to hold a dedicated Ladies Day. The main event is of course the motor sport which is the main reason people go to Goodwood Revival. However in order to make it a family event it is important to have something for everyone, which is where Ladies Day comes in.

Ladies Day first became popular in horse racing, with every horse track offering a Ladies Day each year. The purpose of Ladies Day is to give ladies the chance to dress up and get rid of their men for a few hours! This has captured the attention of the nation, always being popular within the horse racing circuit and now being captured at Goodwood Revival weekend.

The revival always offers car racing, vintage air displays and more, but for us, as a fancy dress shop we are most interested in the Revival outfits. Ladies day this year takes place during the Goodwood Revival weekend. Whilst the ladies enjoy to dress up over the whole weekend, this is when the most effort is made as the best dressed wins a prize.

This year Goodwood Revival is set to be bigger than ever with Vintage at Goodwood bringing together the best vintage shops, costumes, cars and air displays than ever before. The Goodwood Revival is the best place to see fashions of all decades, ages and genders.

Personally, we think this particular Goodwood event means red lipstick, seamed tights and beautiful vintage hats. We always take a camera to Goodwood as there are so many fantastic outfits. We often see many of our dresses which have been hired out, and as you can imagine there is nothing more satisfying than seeing our costumes on people.

Some people find it daunting trying to come up with a costume to wear. So if you’re struggling and planning to attend Goodwood Revival Ladies Day then please give us a call at Mad Hatters and let us dress you in our beautiful dresses. Similarly, if you hire an outfit please take lots of photos and share them with us.
