04 NEWS TUESDAY AUGUST 6 2019 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Jeff Prince, Georgina McNally and Elise Prince Lisa and Wesley Chimdt Kiri Marchall, Christine Stewart and Lizzie Bertossa DARWIN CUP 2019 JUDITH AISTHORPE FASHION is in Tatiana Hoffmanns blood. The self-taught dressmaker comes from a long line of milliners and designers. Ms Hoffmann won the Fashions on the Field competition dressed in a yellow and blue leopard print dress and peacock millinery head piece. She won the Ladies Day competition in the same outfit. It took the talented designer, who only sewed her first dress for the races in 2016, several weeks to craft this years outfit. I feel amazing, this is just incredible, Ive been dreaming about winning, she said. Ms Hoffmann will head south in November to compete in Fashions on the Field at the Melbourne Cup. Madelaine Cvirn took out the millinery award with a bright red oversized bow inspired fascinator that complemented her red dress. Fashions on the Field runner up Gina Cassimatis is a local milliner and finished making her hat at 2am yesterday. She put her dress together with the help of Parap-based dressmaker Irena Graeslim, who stitched it in just five days. While her millinery designs are a staple on the stage it was the first time Ms Cassimatis had taken to the stage herself.

But rest assured, even though were reducing the size of the paper, well continue to bring you more of the stories that matter to the Territory. Youll notice the re-size from August 12, 2019 onwards and the more manageable size will make your paper a bit easier to read, wherever you choose to read it. Were excited about this change to The NT News and Sunday Territorian and look forward to making Territorys favourite papers even better. More local news. Now easier to read.
