With our annual White Party a couple of weeks away (we're celebrating on Labor Day this year, appropriate, yes?) I am completely intrigued by Dîner en Blanc, which took place at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday. A classy flash mob of sorts that originated 24 years ago in Paris, the location is kept secret until the last moment, at which "thousands of people, dressed all in white, conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space".
These photo's were taken by Brandon of Humans of New York, one of my new favorite Facebook follows. They completely capture the essence of the day, don't you think?
Coincidently, Dîner en Blanc - Chicago is happening this Friday and you can bet I'm already on the waiting list.
Update 1:30pm: We're un-waitlisted and registered! Expect lots of white from me in the near future!
