Gladstone events provide frock-fest for fashion lovers

NEXT month promises to be a fashion lover's paradise with at least three Gladstone events providing a chance to frock up for a cause.

The Conquer Cancer with Colour cocktail gala, the Style Me Up Buy Local event and the Sequins and Suits Gladstone Variety Gala Ball will all be held in May.

Kicking off the frock-fest, the cocktail gala will be held on May 17 at Quoin Island Retreat.

It will feature bands, auctions, raffles, lucky door prizes and a three-course meal.

Tickets are $140 each.

The Observer-sponsored Style Me Up will be held at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre on May 25 from 1-4pm.

Fashion retailers will have items on offer and there'll be classes in body shapes, discussion groups and a fashion parade.

The Sequins and Suits ball will be held on May 31.

It raises money for Variety the Children's Charity.

Tickets are $150.
