In her lead up to the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival, known and loved by millions as one of the world’s leading digital influencers, Nicole has been chosen as the Caulfield Style Ambassador to bring her rich and visually vibrant travel and fashion inspirations to the prestigious event.
“I’m incredibly thrilled to be the Caulfield Style Ambassador for 2014. Spring Racing is such an exciting time for Australian style, so I am looking forward to sharing my inspirations and experiences throughout the Caulfield Cup Carnival and seeing the very best of what’s on offer, both on and off the track this season,” said Nicole Warne. “Creating ‘The Caulfield Journey’ film has been a real passion project for me. Everyone has their journey leading up to the Caulfield Cup Carnival, and for me it’s the interplay of fashion and the world we live in that continuously inspires me. Gary Pepper is all about seeing the world through rose coloured glasses and we wanted to communicate this with ‘The Caulfield Journey’.”
Shot over five days in iconic locations including the Split Point Lighthouse, Luna Park, Melbourne City, and Caulfield Racecourse, ‘The Caulfield Journey’ follows a day and a night in the life of Nicole which leads up to one thrilling moment: her arrival at the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival. The film also profiles the very best in the new season’s Australian fashion, with Nicole wearing a dazzling array of race-ready looks from David Jones’ stable of designers, including Dion Lee, Camilla & Marc, Manning Cartell, Lover, and Alice McCall.
“The Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival is such a prestigious event, it’s a day where so many different people come together to create a short but exhilarating moment: from jockeys, to fashionistas, to thoroughbreds and milliners – it’s a time for everybody to celebrate their hard work and achievements,” said Eli Rae, Creative Director of De Republica. “We set out to create an awe-inspiring and whimsical exploration of Nicole’s journey to this year’s event. As Nicole’s world is made up of a mosaic of beautiful imagery, stunning locations, vivid colour, and above all impeccable fashion and style – our goal was to bring this world to life through motion.”
Melbourne Racing Club CEO Brodie Arnhold said the film is a visual testament to the thrill and excitement of the sport of racing. “The Caulfield Journey beautifully captures the passion and beauty that racing inspires both on and off the track. As the premiere event of the spring racing season, we see the Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup Carnival as the ultimate place to experience that feeling.”
