One of the worlds most secretive white "pop-up" picnic parties is about to make it's annual appearance in my home town of Brisbane. That's right Diner en Blanc (white dinner) is back on October 17th ... at a secret location. I am a massive followers of the Diner en Blanc events - and have even volunteered in the past as an table organiser - looking after 60 guests to celebrate in white and have as much fun as possible.
the first official Dîner en Blanc took place in the Parc de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne, started by a man named François Pasquier, who invited a few friends to the Bois and to find each other in the park, they all wore white. The dinner was such a success that they decided the next year, each person would invite some other friends and the event grew organically into the 10000+ dinner it is today, and celebrated in most cities around the world.
So what to wear??! White and only white!! Which is where Urban Prima can help - as you can order any of our pieces and request the colour to be white. Why not some white lexi sequin leggings, or a white swizzle skirt?! My favourite was what I wore last year - the Bichette Tutu with a bespoke sequin top.
If you missed out this year in Brisbane get on the wait-list for next year - and if you are in the other capitals around Australia, your Diner en Blanc is most likely coming up soon! #dinerenblanc #dinerenblancBNE #blancBNE
