In 1988, Frenchman François Pasquier invited a group of friends to an elegant outdoor dinner at Bois de Boulogne, having them dressed in white so that they could easily spot each other.

Fast forward 30 years later, this Dîner en Blanc concept has made its presence in over 70 cities in the world.

For the uninitiated, this event sees thousands of people dressed entirely in white assembling at a secret landmark, equipped with everything they need for an elegant soirée in tow, including folding table and chairs, gourmet picnic food, fine china, silverware, table décor, flowers and white tablecloth.

Over the course of the evening, guests will feast and celebrate amid live music, dance and good company.

They are also encouraged to express their sense of style through elaborate and creative outfits, as well as table décor.

Singapore, having been the first Asian city to host this dinner, will welcome its return on May 12 at an undisclosed, secret location.

As a testimony to its exclusivity, the Singapore leg of the dinner event will happen in three stages: Phase 1 is for members from the previous year; phase 2 is for guests referred by phase 1 members; and phase 3 is for people who are new to the event and have signed up on the waiting list.
