World’s First Tweed Suit For Racing Horse

In celebration of the annual Cheltenham Festival and Horse Race in Gloucestershire, UK, designer Emma Sandham-King created world’s first tweed suit for racing horse. Unveiled by 20-time champion and racing royalty Sir Anthony McCoy, the suit is made from 18 metres of Harris Tweed – that is calculated to be some 10 times more material than a human need. The model was veteran racehorse Morestead who looks so elegant and powerful in a three-piece Harris Tweed suit and flat cap.

“Some models can be real divas, but Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with,” said the suit’s creator Emma Sandham-King, who is an apprentice of the late Alexander McQueen.
“Creating the world’s first tweed suit for a horse has been one of the biggest challenges that I have faced in my career as a designer,” added Sandham-King, who together with her team spent four weeks working on the outfit.
