Fashions off the field: Secret Harbour woman crowned best dressed in Peel

A Secret Harbour woman sporting vintage fabrics and unique textures has been crowned the winner of WA Fashions on the Field's virtual Peel heat.

Anna Hildebrandt earned herself a place in the final at Ascot later this year after taking out the title last week.

Ms Hildebrandt, who entered her first Fashions on the Field competition in 2018, said she wanted to bring together an outfit highlighting all kinds of different pieces.

"I absolutely love mixing textures, especially in a monochromatic colour scheme, so I was very excited when I came across this gorgeous 70's vintage dress," she said.

"The cameo was my nanna's as she loved to collect brooches, and my millinery was made in a vintage fabric.

"The pearl clutch was a friend's vintage find."

Ms Hildebrandt described Fashions on the Field, or in the case of this year's competition Fashions off the Field, as "right down my alley".

"It combines two of my passions - horse racing and fashion," she said.

"As a child, we would spend most Friday nights at Gloucester Park running on the grass with the horses as they came down the straight.

"Now, I just love to frock up, soak up the sun and enjoy some bubbles and have a few bets here and there.

"In my opinion, there is nothing better than a day at the races."

As part of her prize for winning the Peel heat, Ms Hildebrandt won a $750 cash prize and a $500 donation from Community TAB to give to a local charity.

"I have selected to donate the $500 to Dot's Place, Peel Cancer Support Centre," she said.

"My mother conquered breast cancer, and as of late I lost my father to prostate cancer.

"I am forever grateful to charities such as Dot's Place, who give strength and hope to those who need it during an extremely hard time."

The heats will finish on August 2 with the winners of each one to be shortlisted for the WA Fashions on the Field Final.

The winner of the overall competition will take home a major prize including a trip for two to London to attend the 2021 Royal Ascot, $10,000 in spending money and a $5,000 Linneys voucher.
