MALIE MORAN, CO-HOST DINER EN BLANC HONOLULU FELIZ SALAS, STYLIST/DESIGNE R 1. We are here talking about white fashion today – what is the significance of white? Diner en Blanc was started by a man named Francois Pasquier and friends who met up for a picnic dinner in a park one day. To find each other, they all wore white. They enjoyed their white dinner so much that they just kept inviting more and more people and it grew to the size it is now today. All that white also gives an elegant and ethereal feel to the event once everyone is together. 2. Tell us about the looks you have designed and styled? Today we are going for more of an upscale look, so we have two women’s looks and one men’s look with options for various accessories from T Galleria. 3. Why do accessories play a big role in styling? Accessories can sometimes really make or break the look. Its a versatile tool to use in taking the look from day to night, or from casual to formal, and its a playground for expressing your creativity and personality. 4. What is the concept of Diner en Blanc? At the last minute, the location is given to thousands of friends and acquaintances who have been patiently waiting to learn the “Dner en Blanc’s” secret place. Thousands of people, dressed all in white, and conducting themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette, all meet for a mass “chic picnic” in a public space.
