Diner en Blanc Melbourne 2018 was my first time at the all white event. But it certainly won’t be my last. With the concept originating in Paris 30 years ago, it now takes place in over 70 cities across the world debuting in Melbourne in 2015.
For those of you wondering “What the eff is Diner en Blanc?”, here’s a quick download for you.
It’s an invite only, pop up dinner in a secret public space where everyone’s dressed in their most elegant white ensembles. Guests bring their own food, tables, chairs and tableclothes to enjoy each others company, food and a few champa’s.
This year our sea of white swarmed to the Carlton Gardens where the Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition Building created a powerful background for a beautiful night of fun, food and frivolity.
I ate, drank and danced the night away in a stunning Self Portrait dress that I hired from the lovely ladies at Dress Hire AU. It was the perfect mix of no fuss romance, with a full skirt of box pleats broken up by floral lace. Need I say more?
For any of you who have considered going to Diner en Blanc, you get a big fat YES from me. I’ll see you there babe.
