On November 28, The Frocktail Party returned to the Arcadian Loft for an evening of fashion and philanthropy in support of The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Easily one of our favourite events of the year, Frocktail Party’s main attraction is an incredible silent auction featuring highly covetable dresses (obviously), accessories, menswear and luxury experiences from top designers, retailers and brands from across the country. It’s heaven to silent auction addicts, which we totally confess to being.
This year’s donors included Hudson’s Bay, Zac Posen, Intermix, eLuxe, Danier, Greta Constantine, LINE Knitwear, Diane von Furstenberg, and Pink Tartan, among many others. In addition, many donated gowns also came straight from the closets of bold-faced names like Rachel McAdams, Nelly Furtado, Cheryl Hickey, Tanya Kim, Cynthia Loyst, Ben Mulroney, Jessica Mulroney, Suzanna Rogers and Jenna Bitove. A chance at snagging a piece from Mrs. Rogers’ closet at a fraction of the cost, and for a very worthy cause? Definitely a win-win.
Partygoers donned their very best frocks for the occasion, and we’re disappointed some of those dresses weren’t up for grabs in the silent auction too – we’re looking at you, Ms. Bitove. There’s always next year, right? Check out the gallery below for 27 style snaps from Frocktail Party 2013. And to find out more about JDRF, click on over here.
