Around 1,500 people gathered at the Docklands Waterfront in Melbourne last night for the annual Dîner en Blanc in Melbourne.
Dubbed as a “chic picnic”, the annual dinner is characterised by its strict all-white dress code and sees thousands of people gathering together at an iconic location which is not revealed until hours before the event.
Nearly 10,000 people in Australia have taken part in the picnic in which guests are expected to bring their own hampers, wine and decorations.
This is the second year that Melbourne has celebrated Dîner en Blanc after hosting their inaugural dinner outside the Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2015.
Other major Australian cities are also home to the event such as Brisbane who first celebrated it in 2012 in the South Bank Parklands, Adelaide, Canberra as well as Perth who will be hosting its first Dîner en Blanc on March 20.
The event originated from Paris and has since grown to 20 countries around the world.
