Rachel Weigler-Benson attended her first Kentucky Derby in 2016 and was immediately hooked. Race fashion became a passion, and she hopes to help elevate Race Fashion Culture in the United States. The Longines Prize for Elegance is the highest honor of the racing season, and Rachel had placed Top 10 in her first two showings before winning the top prize in 2019 at the Longines Kentucky Oaks.
Rachel lives in Indianapolis with her husband and 3 dogs. She left a decade-long career as a hotelier in order to pursue a Masters degree in Applied Economics from Indiana University. She teaches Barre and Reformer Pilates, and uses her downtime to design custom crystal and enamel handbags.
