Friday, 5 August 2022. Set for next month’s return of spring racing, Cairns Amateurs
Carnival (8 to 10 September 2022) has crowned one of Australia’s most stylish
doyennes, award-winning Fashions on the Field competitor and sought-after judge,
Emma Scodellaro as 2022 Carnival Ambassador.
Ms Scodellaro is honoured to fly the flag for Cairns Amateurs Carnival 2022 and is
looking forward to visiting the tropical Far North after two years of pandemic related
travel restrictions.
Ms Scodellaro first visited Cairns Amateurs Carnival in 2019 as guest Fashions on the
Field (FOTF) judge. Since then, she has been actively involved in a range of initiatives
promoting Cairns Amateurs and spreading the word via her social media platform,
“It’s All About the Sash”, which actively engages racing fashion’s emerging and elite
FOTF competitors.
Cairns Amateurs Carnival’s event manager Victoria Jennings said they are thrilled to
announce Emma as this year’s ambassador which is a responsibility that along with
promoting the fun, fashion, and racing of Far North Queensland’s iconic event,
includes being one of four guest judges deciding the most stylish entrants in this
year’s hotly contested FOTF competition.
“Em is not only stunning and successful, but she is also a warm and engaging person
who lifts and inspires others and for this reason she is perfectly suited to the role of
Carnival Ambassador,” Ms Jennings said.
Along with her passion for Australia’s racing industry and winning looks both on and
off the field, Ms Scodellaro cites her digital platform, It’s All About the Sash, as her
greatest achievement.
“I created It’s All About the Sash to be a supportive, inclusive platform for likeminded
others, which has been embraced for promoting friendship, sharing ideas and its
catalogue of winning competitors at home and abroad.
“This is pretty much the ‘go to’ page or platform for anyone who is interested in
racing fashion, and it is something I am really proud of,” Ms Scodellaro said.
“Fashions on the Field have been my absolute passion for so long now and through
my social platforms I aim to educate, promote, and contribute to the development of
racing fashion events not only in Australia but worldwide.
“I absolutely love Cairns and the Cairns Amateurs, and I cannot wait to get back up
there in my role as ambassador and Fashions on the Field judge. I am truly
honoured,” she said.
Added to her involvement in Fashions on the Field, Emma works as a collectables
curator which has built on her previous career of almost two decades in education.
Away from racetrack and catwalk she also loves spending time with family, styling her
personal race wear looks, promoting authenticity in fashion and riding Harley
Davidson motorcycles.
