Combining a totality of en vogue traditions into one epicurean phenomenon, Le Diner en Blanc is back in Auckland for its fifth installment.
The ‘world’s fanciest picnic’ is already reaching phase three of its rigid launch plan. The invites have been sent, RSVP’s confirmed, which leaves March 7th as the date to be glued to your computer to discover if you’ve been lucky enough to make it to the guest list.
As the world’s most elegant and dazzling dining phenomenon, it is no surprise Le Diner en Blanc promises for an unforgettable evening. If you have been in the dark about this event till now, don’t panic. The veil of secrecy that Le Diner en Blanc adorns, ensures only Auckland’s most elite are in attendance.
Rumours of this year’s location have pegged the affair to be the most picturesque and unexpected yet.
Pah Homestead was home to last year’s stunning evening, which featured pop-ups from the likes of Dry & Tea, and Perrier-Jouet! But, before you go looking, the event location isn’t released until that very night. If you can’t bear the shroud of mystery, we are right there with you… the suspense is killing us!
French aficionados among us will have noticed that the event’s name, in translation, is The White Dinner. Therefore, you can only assume that your best whites need to be immediately sent to dry-cleaning… and we mean pronto!
Whether you are a Diner en Blanc alumni or have finally made it to the exclusive guest list, we’ve got you covered from head-to-toe for all your French fashion needs.
We’re on a fashion mission to help you be this year's Diner en Blanc trend-setter. You've got until March 24th... so you better start looking now! As a push in the right direction, we have compiled this season’s top looks from our favourite designers, for your eyes only.
With that in mind, it’s time to grab your purpose-bought picnic baskets and a bottle of the finest bubbly on offer because this BYO bourgeois evening is approaching!
Phase three registrations are now open, so make sure you sign up here to avoid the disappointment of missing out on one of the most chic events on this summer’s social calendar.
