Pay now buy later leader Afterpay has hosted its first ever streetwear inspired spring racewear event at Centennial Park in Sydney. Sydney’s fashion and beauty influencers joined media personality and racing style expert Nikki Phillips, Afterpay fashion stylist Jules Sebastian, celebrity makeup artist Max May and Afterpay founder Nick Molnar for an intimate fashion and beauty show, held over breakfast.

Over 80% or 4 in 5 people from Afterpay’s impressive customer base, have purchased from a fashion or beauty retailer in the last year. More than ever, Australians are using buy-now pay-later platforms for fashion and beauty purchases to forego the credit card and spread out costs so they can properly enjoy an occasion. Attending at day the races can be an expensive exercise, however with Australia’s favorite fashion retailers and Afterpay, you can enjoy your day without the upfront financial hit–with 4 equal and manageable fortnightly payments.

With over 14,000 fashion and beauty merchants are now signed on to Afterpay in Australia, Afterpay provides the ability for racegoers to buy-now and pay-later with their favourite designers and brands and across a variety of budgets. With this in mind, Jules and Max identified the key racing fashion and makeup looks of the season, not matter what your budget.

Afterpay Founder, Nick Molnar, spoke to his background in the beauty and fashion space, having developed the Afterpay concept while selling jewellery on e-Bay and completing his degree at 24 years of age. He stated that, “At the heart of it, Afterpay is a fashion and beauty sales platform. We connect Australian customers to the brands they know and love, but also introduce them to brands they may not have considered”.

Jules Sebastian, Afterpay stylist, said “This season we’re seeing streetwear style dominate the spring racing season. Think exciting hemlines, tailored suiting for the ladies and a real play with structural fashion cues. Of course, we’re still ensuring it’s trackside appropriate, but trackside looks with an edge.” Max added that this racing season’s makeup look follows a less- is -more approach, “Think simple, natural and really clean. We’re loving dewy natural skin and highlights, bronzed natural tones and nude lips with gloss for that natural shine. The key is knowing which products will give you that natural coverage but won’t shift throughout the day”.
