The lowdown: Austinites donned their favorite derby-inspired apparel at Austin Influential Group's third annual Derby Day event. Held at TenOak Bourbon House and Lounge, the event benefited Ride on Center for Kids, which provides equine-assisted therapies and activities to children and adults with disabilities.
Big hits at this year's celebration were a Bloody Mary bar, a cupcake bar, a retro cigar lounge and a fashion show featuring local designers like The Ross Bennett Collection and Rare Trends. In true Kentucky Derby fashion, guests also placed bets on their favorite race horses for raffle prizes.
