Colton’s Couture: 7th Annual Diner en Blanc
The 7th annual Le Diner en Blanc took over the manicured lawns of the world-renowned VanDusen Gardens on Thursday, August 23rd.
The Le Diner en Blanc event that saw 4,500+ like-minded persons joining together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this unique international event which began as a friendly picnic in Paris, France. Originator François Pasquier, his wife, and the French Diner en Blanc ambassador flew in for the event and were special guests of the hosts Tyson Villeneuve and Jordan Kallman of The Social Concierge event production company.
With a strict dress code and a mandate to bring your picnic table, chairs, and food with you, a majority of the guests brought their creativity to the forefront with amazing fashion and costumes.
Colton’s Couture was pleased to sponsor a seating in the Table d’Honneur VIP area and an all-white fantasy lounge under the branches in the woods. Our table was hosted by Howard Colton and his wife Patti Dorfman Colton, Lancho Cephivenus, and five women known for their impeccable style and influence in the Chinese community.
Our guests were treated to a 5-course meal prepared by the award-winning chef David Hawksworth and the 5-star butler service ensured everyone had their glasses full at all times.
As the sun set and the all-white evening on the green wrapped, guests began filtering down to the parking lot, while many others took to the dance floor at the Le Disco Afterparty.
Colton’s Couture wishes all the best to our invited guests, all those who stopped by our table to congratulate us on the relaunch of our store in Oakridge Centre, and to our fellow sponsors for being such great company. Until next year National Bank, Concord Pacific, Miles End Motors, and the team at J.P. Chenet.
Our table guest, Lancho Cephivenus’ team at Chobee created this incredible video of the event. Enjoy!
