It’s now under 2 weeks until my favourite event of the year, Dîner en Blanc! If you’re reading this thinking Dîner en What Now? do not fear – it is intended to be a bit of a mystery. Guests are simply instructed to “dress in white, be chic, be elegant” and to gather at a designated meeting place before being whisked away to a secret location for a magical evening under the stars.
It all began in Paris in 1988 when a man by the name of François Pasquier invited his friends to meet for an elegant outdoor dinner, asking them to dress in white to identify one another. Today Dîner on Blanc is held in over 50 cities globally, with a universal concept of bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to enjoy an evening of good food, wine and company.
This year’s event, taking place on Saturday 4 March, will mark the 3rd consecutive year that Melbourne has taken part. So with the location staying a tightly-held secret, there is not much left to do other than figure out what to wear.
Here is some outfit inspiration to get you excited!
If you haven’t secured your tickets, word on the street is that there are precious few remaining here. Hurry!
