Sydney Airport Partners with Nikki Phillips for a Winning Spring Racing Carnival Celebration

October 29, 2014 Airport No Comments Email Email

With Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival off and running, Sydney Airport is celebrating by partnering with renowned fashion blogger, model and TV personality, Nikki Phillips, to bring to life her favourite racing essentials found at T2.

Phillips has curated her top three spring racing outfits below $350, $500 and $800 with items found within T2 from retailers such as Country Road, Witchery, French Connection and more. You can find the outfits and her other spring racing essentials from Sydney Airport at @sydneyairport on Instagram.

Phillips will also be featuring her top Cup picks from beauty products to a glass of bubbly to enjoy before flying to Melbourne on Sydney Airport’s Instagram.

“It’s been great to partner with Sydney Airport in the lead up to Melbourne Spring Carnival to discover their amazing array of fashion, food and accessories,” Phillips said. “I’m always traveling and it’s great to know there’s so much to choose from at T2 at every price point – especially for the races. In fact, it was difficult to pick just three outfits!”

“With the Melbourne Spring Carnival drawing in more than 650,000 people each year, there’s always a festive atmosphere on Cup day at T2 with Sydneysiders catching their flights to Melbourne,” Sydney Airport General Manager Retail Glyn Williams said.

“The reinvigoration of the retail outlets at T2 offers racing-bound customers high-quality fashion, beauty, food and beverage options to discover prior to take off, whether it’s fascinators at mimco, heels from Witchery or a quick cup of coffee from Toby’s Estate.”

From 27 October – 9 November, T2 will host musical performances, racing fashion displays and more in celebration of Australia’s biggest racing event of the year.

Sydney Airport’s Instagram will also play host to a competition that offers visitors to T2 a chance to win a trip to the Melbourne Cup in 2015 by uploading a photo alongside one of the horse statues that will be stationed throughout the terminal.
