Biz Gals has partnered with fashion designer and stylist Katie Perry, to bring you a Spring Carnival-themed event showcasing some of Australia’s best and brightest female designers in support of Dress For Success Sydney.

​Anthea Crawford, Leina Broughton, Vigorella, Little Black Dress, Birdsnest and Katie Perry herself will feature their designs on some truly inspirational women who have been helped by Dress For Success Sydney. Award-winning milliner to the stars, Kim Fletcher, will also showcase her stunning pieces as part of the parade.

​These beautiful women know firsthand the work that Dress For Success Sydney does to help get disadvantaged women back on their feet and are the epitome of why they are a charity Biz Gals chooses to support at so many of our events. To make this experience even more special for our models, they will have their make-up done by Sandra Glynn prior to strutting the catwalk.

​In keeping with the Spring Carnival theme, we are honoured to welcome Wendy Green, the inspirational owner of 1999 Melbourne Cup winning horse Rogan Josh and the first female owner to win a Melbourne Cup since 1915, as our guest speaker. Dubbed "Wendy In Wonderland" by legendary horse trainer Bart Cummings, Wendy will share her experience being an invisible woman in a male dominated industry. She will also speak about her colourful journey from beloved school teacher in Darwin to owning the “lightly-raced and unfashionably bred” horse who won the race that stops the nation.

​Your ticket also includes the exclusive opportunity to pose for a photo with Wendy’s famed Melbourne Cup, a delectable grazing table created by Chef Daniel, wine from Watershed Premium Wines and a gift bag brimming with treats! 10% of each ticket sold will be donated to Dress for Success Sydney, a charity that helps empower women by providing professional clothing and accessories, a network of support and practical skills to help increase the employability of women in need.

We are offering guests the opportunity to win a slew of prizes in return for donating a pre-loved handbag to the Dress For Success Sydney stand at the event. They simply cannot operate their free of charge programs and services with clothing and accessory donations alone and therefore we ask that you kindly include a note with your bag to help fund their life changing career support program.
​It may just be a handbag and a note to you but for her, your bag will instil confidence and restore dignity and your note will help upskill and build her resilience.
