A veteran racehorse Morestead commemorated a horse racing’s Cheltenham Festival wearing a three-piece suit. The designer team finished the task of creating an 18 m long garment in almost a month.
We must have seen pets like dogs and cats wearing suits because their owners love doing so. Or their pets might love getting dressed up too. After all, they too, deserve occasional clothing.
But have you ever witnessed the same with a horse? Not any teeny tiny pet but a whole big creature wearing a big garment piece.
Below you will see a well-dressed horse posing in its dashing attire.
A veteran racehorse Morestead wore a three-piece Harris tweed suit with a shirt, tie, and flat cap. He commemorated a horse racing’s Cheltenham Festival 2016, which kicks off Tuesday in Gloucestershire, England. William Hill Betting Company chose Morestead as a part of promoting the festival. It was accompanied by Champion Jockey Sir Anthony Peter McCoy-an Irish former horse racing jockey and a champion. The well-dressed model earned a huge appreciation from horse racing spectators.
The four-legged model did carry its formal outfit really well. According to some, he looked no less than a gentleman (gentle-horse, though).
"I think Morestead is a bit like the Naomi Campbell of the modeling world; he's strutting his stuff and he's wearing the tweed with style," said Jon Ivan Duke of bookmaker William Hill, which commissioned the outfit. (credits: CNN)
The interesting fact is that the suit was created by a former Alexander McQueen apprentice Emma Sandham-King. It took Sandham-King and her team four weeks and ten times the amount of nubby tweed fabric of a suit intended for a man (59 feet to be exact) to complete the sartorial showpiece.
Emma says, “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,” she said in a statement. “Some models can be real divas, but veteran racing horse Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with.”
