ALL THE FUN FROM FROCKTAILS
WHITSUNDAY’S premiere fashion event Frocktails returned to Airlie Beach on Friday night in fine form as part of this year’s Whitsunday Reef Festival.
The ladies dressed to the nines while men were looking sharp with their collars and pointy shoes.
There were a selection of elaborate canapés to nibble on thanks to Whitsunday Catering, while Mama Africa and Niteclub provided an extensive range of delicious cocktails.
Frocktails is an annual celebration of the best in local fashion houses, stylists, event organisation and hair and make up artistry.
Local band Boy n Bree were widely popular as they entertained guests before the fashion parade.
First up in the parade was swimwear from Swim Haven.
The Voice contestant Tahlia Tabone serenated audiences between parades with her impressive vocal range.
Following swimwear were fashions from Lotus Boutique, Moochas and concluded with gowns from Kim Marcel Art of Couture.
Audiences were transformed to a Parisian fashion show with the theme for Kim Marcel Art of Couture’s ‘intrigue’.
Models wore black lace and accessories as a contrast from the fairytale gowns.
Each fashion parade featured exquisite fascinators and accessories from Divalicious Fascinators, many designed by Sarah Homburg were made especially for Frocktails.
The evening was also a sneak peak to the brand new Whitsunday Arts and Cultural Centre on Waterson Way in Airlie Beach.
I Do Events Whitsundays transformed the venue’s rooftop terrace into a fairy garden with candles, fairy lights and trialing ivy.
Event organiser Clace Brady said it was “the best Frocktails to date” and that the event would only get bigger and better.
