Behid the scenes - Newmarket.
It is usually journalists who burn the midnight oil, but some late-night efforts produced the goods for Terry Fox when she
landed first prize in the
best-dressed-lady competition on Ladies' Day at Newmarket on Tuesday.
A day of bright sunshine ensured the women were bedecked in all their finery and the fashion designer from Thorpe Morieux near Bury St Edmunds won the judges over with a fuchsia-pink 1950s-style dress and shocking-pink hat with red roses and a sequinned butterfly.
Fox said: "I only started working on the outfit on Monday and didn't get finished until late but it was well worth the effort. This is the first time that I've ever entered the competition."
The prize of a pounds 1,000 voucher for a designer outfit from Jeff Banks Studio was appropriate for Fox, who has 20 years' experience in fashion design and has appeared with Banks on The Clothes Show, when she was asked to assist in judging a dressmaking competition.
