It was a peculiar sight to onlookers: Thousands of people dressed head to toe in white carrying picnic baskets and white tables.. all setting up in rows at a prominent city location, unbeknownst to them until the very minute they hop off their chartered bus. Sound familiar? It’s the international Dîner en Blanc, where strangers donned completely in white experience a chic picnic together, much to the bewilderment of passerbys. This event originated in Paris in the 80s and now occurs in many major cities worldwide. This year I attended the one in Melbourne.
Location: Fitzroy Gardens
Dressed by: Something Borrowed Melbourne
Have you guys ever attended a Dîner en Blanc? I already can’t wait until next year’s event. At least dressing for it will be easy!
