cocktailThe popular Frocktail Party returned this year. Last Thursday CityEvents enjoyed the fabulous frock designs and dancing at the Arcadian Loft. We were proud to help celebrate the 5th year of compassion and fashion in support of juvenile diabetes.

frocktailWe have attended every year and some years have been lucky enough to bid and win a new frock.  As someone that attends a number of events it has been a great place to pick up some great finds.  This year after a fierce bidding war and down to the last 5 seconds we won an Oscar de La Renta dress donated by Valerie Pringle…all for a few hundred dollars.
frocktail3I expect this quality dress will get a lot of wear and excited for the next big function. My guy friend won a great Strellson suit for only a few hundred dollars, less than half of what it is in the store. It was great to see more at the event for the men besides being with all of the beautiful ladies.
I have to say some of the dresses on the attendees were amazing and who knows maybe will be donated for future events.

frocktail2The dresses on auction are a variety of fashionable donated frocks by a variety of local retailers and celebrities. Some of the sponsors included Hudson’s Bay, O&B, French Connection, Marciano, got2b, Peroni, Iceberg Vodka, and Hendricks Gin.  We loved the mini boutiques by celebrity donators like Suzanna Rogers and stores like Marciano.  There were more than a few finds we would have loved.

It was great to join friends who also supported the event like glam jewellry designer Shay Lowe who donated some of her bright blue earrings again this year and other keen bidders.  We look forward to next year.  To check out some of the photos check out the Frocktail website and look out for details next fall on the 6th Annual.
