Spring racing season is all about headwear, and an incredibly unique collaboration between Disney and leading Australian milliner, Richard Nylon, is celebrating this by creating two one-of-a-kind couture headpieces, one female and one male inspired by style icon Minnie Mouse and popular Mickey Mouse, for the carnival.

Australian Next Top Model winner Melissa Juratowitch, pictured above trying on one of Richard’s amazing creations, will reveal the spectacular female creation on Emirates Stakes Day this Saturday and Richard himself showcased the male version at Derby Day. Following the Spring Racing Carnival, the couture designs will be sent to London where they will make an appearance at The Royal Ascot Racing Club.
