Give A Frock

Have you heard about our annual #giveafrock campaign?

Melbourne's most fashionable women came together to donate outfits for sale in support of our Women’s House.

Frocks for sale at our Prahran op shop and on Instagram

It is still possible to support Give A Frock: there are many gorgeous dresses available for purchase at the Prahran op shop pop-up shop at 110 Commercial Rd, Prahran.

In case you didn't get a chance to come to the Fashion Parade last month, we have selected some beautiful designer dresses to sell online via our new Instagram account @sacredheartonlinestore. It's easy to secure a dress, simply comment 'SOLD' or 'Sold pending', if you have any questions.

Thank you for supporting #giveafrock

Thank you for hosting a Give A Frock party and donating dresses. Thanks also to everyone who came to our wonderful Fashion Show at The Glasshouse on 18 October.

A big thank you to our Give A Frock ambassadors Chyka Keebaugh, Sally Bloomfield, D’Arne Finnis and Laura McLachlan.

Why get involved?

On any given night, there are more than 22,000 Victorians experiencing homelessness. Nearly 10,000 of those are women.

Sacred Heart Mission’s Women’s House is a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for women who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless.

A donation of $50 will fund one woman’s visit for support at Women’s House. Donate $100 to provide one woman's meals for a whole month.

History of Give A Frock

In 2015 D’Arne Finnis (partner of St Kilda Football Club CEO – Matt Finnis) wore a dress purchased from a Sacred Heart Mission Op Shop to the Brownlow dinner. She kindly did this to help raise awareness of our work in the community.

She did this again in 2016, along with Jo Richardson and Karen Masson (partners of St Kilda Football Club’s Coach and President). They all wore dresses bought from our Op Shops and spoke about the importance of our work with women experiencing homelessness.

Last year, women from across six AFL clubs 'gave a frock'. Laura McLachlan (wife of Gillon McLachlan - AFL CEO) also got involved by donating her dresses, increasing awareness and funds for the Mission's Women’s House even more!

This year, D’Arne and Laura will again be Ambassadors for Give A Frock, joined this year by the wonderful Chyka Keebaugh, Australia's favourite homemaker.
