This Saturday we will gather around with mint juleps, savoring the long standing ritual of the Kentucky Derby. This cultural tradition is more than just a race, it's a showcase of the formal yet vibrant style that's become synonymous with springtime in the Bluegrass.

The fashion surrounding thoroughbred racing is truly unique and spurs stunning vintage themed weddings and portrait sessions. Today we're sharing some of our favorite derby styles to inspire your next photo shoot.

In 1875, ten­ thousand people gathered to watch 15 horses “Run for the Roses.” Almost 140 years later, more than 100,000 people are expected to flock to Louisville for the race. What styles, old or new, will you be sporting at this year's Derby?
