Leather jacket & skirt with satin bustier
Bruce Papas made this outfit to be worn to the Fashion in the Fields competition at the Melbourne Cup. It originally had two skirts – one white and one gold. On the back of his original sketch is a record of the time and materials it took Bruce to make this - the whole ensemble took 99.5 hours to make.
