Visitors to The Brewery in Cheltenham this week will notice a striking racing-themed display in the former Habitat unit.

The display is based on the fashion heritage of the races and was created by Bishop's Cleeve milliner Lisa von Hallwyl.

“I wanted to combine local talent to create a display where people can appreciate the magnificent sculpture of a horse and also the fashion of the races,” she says.

The images in the exhibition were taken by Nikki Kirk Photography with models Charlotte Hamilton, who won Best Outfit at last year’s Cheltenham Festival, and Sophie Organ. The clothes are from Georgina Rose of Cotswold Bride in Regent Street.

Lisa adds: “I designed the exhibit to bring couture art to The Brewery.”

The stunning wire sculpture by Cotswolds sculptor Rupert Till, a regular exhibitor at RHS Chelsea, is for sale for £40,000.

“I’m chuffed to bits that it will be there during race week when The Brewery will be absolutely heaving,” Rupert said.

“It’s a great place to show it off and I hope it inspires other Gloucestershire artists who can go and see it and maybe inspire them to make something out of wire too.”
