Frocktail Party

“We are excited to let you know that last night’s Frocktail Party held at the stunning Arcadian Loft, raised $100,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation bringing us closer to a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

“The event was filled with nearly 500 of Toronto’s most fashionable bidding on the designer dresses including Balmain, Gucci, Lanvin, Zac Posen, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Valentino, Mary Katrantzou, Erdem, Versace, Dior, Alexander McQueen and more! This year’s hottest items were “His and Hers” custom Burberry trench coats, a silver fox fur blanket from Caroline Furs, a custom suit from Garrison Bespoke and there was a fierce bidding war over a preloved Alexander McQueen clutch!

Glitz and glamour was brought by The Revlon Professional Style bar doing hair touch-ups all night long and CND providing complimentary manis at their nail bar.

Over the past six years, Frocktail Party has raised more than $300,000 for JDRF.  This year was another huge success bringing fashion lovers and frocks together for a great cause!


HISTORY

The Frocktail Party was founded in 2009 by Jessica Oliver, Ali Reid and Jen Foster who wanted to make a difference in support of Jessica’s sister Vanessa. Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at six-years old, Vanessa has lived with daily insulin injections, finger pokes, an insulin pump and the worry of long-term complications every day for 28 years. Over the course of their relationship with the Oliver family, the girls have seen Vanessa face these challenges with courage, grace and a fierce commitment to supporting a quest for a cure. This inspired the creation of The Frocktail Party.
