Frocktober









What is Frocktober?

Throughout October, the Frocktober campaign invites women to band together and wear their favourite dresses while raising funds for the OCRF.
For a day, a week or the whole month, something as simple as the clothes we put on our back has the potential to start important conversations, raising awareness of the lack of early detection method, of women’s experiences, and of how we as a community can do more to support ovarian cancer research.



Why should I frock up?


Frocktober empowers women of all backgrounds, lifestyles and fabulous fashion senses to support a common cause: ovarian cancer research. It’s a chance to connect with like-minded women, share personal experiences, and play a pivotal role in the journey towards an early detection test for ovarian cancer.'

How do I get involved?

Frocktober is all about participation, in whichever form that may take.
Dedicated supporters might curate a month-long Frocktober wardrobe, uploading a snap of themselves in a different dress each day to their social channels. Others may choose to gather a group of friends to frock up and attend a single event. 

So what am I doing to support Frocktober?

After the success of the Adelaide Silver Style Cocktail Party 2016, I decided it would be a good idea to run another Adelaide Silver Style event.

To mix things up a bit I'm holding a fundraising lunch inline with the Frocktober Campaign.

Planning of the Adelaide Silver Style Frocktober Friday Lunch in support of the OCRF is in full swing!

I've assembled the best of the best in Adelaide.
