About

Easy rider is an Oriental-inspired riding outfit comprising blue silk satin jodhpurs with Chinese style jacket featuring yellow taffeta binding. It was shown in the 1975 Flamingo Follies parade along with a collection of bias cut dresses named Flemington, Randwick, Rose Hill and Harold Park, all perfect styles for a day at the races.
