    Karen Millen have served up sartorial winners ever since they first raced out of the traps and now they are odds on favorite to be a wardrobe winner at Ascot this year.

    As the official fashion partner for Ascot 2018, Karen Millen has created an exclusive collection which puts the occasion into occasion wear with hand printed florals, lush lace work, terrific tailoring in on-trend pinks and blushes. Honed in the Karen Millen in-house Atelier and crafted in the most luxurious fabrics the designs make use of couture techniques for a seriously flattering silhouette. Talk about thoroughbred threads!

    Naturally race day dressing decisions demand a head-to-toe approach and for the first time Karen Millen has added hats and fascinators to its occasion wear edit. Whether you are OTT Princess Beatrice or a demure Duchess of Cambridge there is the hat size for you.

    Our personal bets are on the white tailored two-piece topped off with an asymmetric black hat and the hand printed white strap dress that can easily be taken off the turf and into wedding season. Lord knows a girl has to have a summer dress that can be fitting for many summer social commitments.

    The collection is available online at Karen Millen now – we will race you for it!
