Dîner en Blanc proves to be a great success in Dubai

Diner en Blanc 2014 at Sofitel The Palm Dubai

 

The First Dîner en Blanc in the region took place on Friday (December 12) at the private pearlescent beach of the Sofitel The Palm Dubai.

With 600 guests showing up in all-white outfits at what was initially known as the ‘secret venue’, the inaugural authentic ‘white’ dinner in Dubai marks another first for the cosmopolitan city.

“We are delighted to have been part of this historic occasion.  Such a distinguished event perpetuates the true Parisian spirit and also reflects Sofitel’s ‘art de’vivre’,” says Christophe Schnyder, general manager of Sofitel The Palm Dubai, in a recent press release.

With the first edition of Dîner en Blanc being hosted in Paris more than 25 years ago, it now brings together approximately 15,000 people each year in Paris alone. Today, in 40 cities across five continents, the event has become an international trend.

“This has been a magical evening and a great success for the first ever Dîner en Blanc in the region,” says one of the anonymous organisers, in a press statement.

The popular flash mob dinner has taken place in front of numerous popular destinations, such as Notre Dame, the Champs Elysees and even the Louvre Garden. This event, which welcomed 16,000 people on six bridges over the Seine in its last edition, was a success in Dubai.

Each guest was provided with an A-to-Z guide prior to the event specifying how they should prepare for the evening, to ensure that they followed the dress code.

Keeping the first edition of Dîner en Blanc in Dubai exclusive, the guest list was limited to 700 people.
