Del Mar track to host pre-race Fashion Trifecta July 12


Fans and fashionistas will have the opportunity to peruse this season’s most ornate, whimsical and over-the-top styles on July 12 at the Fashion Trifecta at the Track. The first ever pre-race fashion event will be held at the Del Mar Racetrack in preparation for Opening Day, which takes place July 16.

From bow ties to bold jewelry, this trunk show will be a one-stop shop for everything needed to get race-day ready and preview the summer’s latest trends.

The event will feature more than 15 pop-up vendors with models showcasing cocktail to couture offerings from boutiques such as: Del Mar Hat Co., Jill Courtemanche, La Femme Chic, Sweet Bling, Cedros Soles, Lux Ave Boutique, Maggie B & Mister B, and more.

The event will be held in the Turf Club Courtyard area near the Paddock from noon to 4 p.m. Guests will not only experience specially selected fashions, but there will also be an opportunity drawing featuring a grand prize awarded to one lucky shopper. Proceeds from the drawing and boutiques will benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
