Fashionista granny steals the show at Ipswich Cup

GRANDMOTHER Sandra Robson has set a new standard for her racing fashion enthusiast granddaughters - her own.

Mrs Robson won first place in the Riverlink Fashions on the Field competition at the Ipswich Cup on the weekend, setting the pace for her four granddaughters who also regular compete in similar completions around the country.

Mrs Robson usually designs and sews outfits for her granddaughter to wear in competitions, including a past national winner, but this time she was centre stage.

"My love for fashion has gone back about 15 years. What I do normally is I sew and make outfits for my granddaughters. My granddaughters have won quite a lot of prizes but they had to work so couldn't come to Ipswich," she said.

"I just love fashion so much I thought I'd come along and just observe and be part of it all which I have over many years."
