The Frocktail Party celebrated its 5th Anniversary with a sensational soiree fearing fabulous fashion, scrumptious hors d’eouvres by Oliver & Bonacini, OPI nail bars, eyelash bars, Swag room, silent auction and dance floor. Held at The Arcadian Loft in The Simpson Tower at Hudson’s Bay Queen Street, the venue is both posh and spacious with different areas to lounge, browse, be pampered and of course dance.
This French Connection dress was one of the best of the night!
The event which attracted primarily female guests was a platform to showcase your best cocktail dress, so to speak, with the ladies sporting stylish frocks, lust-worthy stilettos and of course some incredible jewellery. Textures, cuts and styles of dresses varied, but the shorter the better. Chunky necklaces were also sported in a big way.
Designer and vintage outfits and accessories were at great prices including a stunner by Greta Constantine. French Collection brought out a sensational collection including one floral dress that was simply to-die-for. Retailing for over $300, it was auctioned for just $100; talk about a great buy for a great cause! Marciano also had the sexiest boots in the house.
