Linneys Diner En Blanc

If you happened to be driving around Perth on the night of Saturday, April 1, you could be forgiven for thinking that the authorities had flicked the switch on a spare hundred or so CBD lights.

Well, there sure was electricity in the air and a glow on the ground. Both were coming from the white wave of glamour of the 2017 Le Diner en Blanc, Perth.

Linneys was front and centre as a major event sponsor and chosen supplier of the prize for the Best Dressed.

The breathtaking piece was Linneys Australian white pearl, diamond and white gold pendant, in keeping with the white theme of course! It is a perfect white pearl, cradled in 11 perfectly shaped diamonds, cupped by a white gold band on a white gold necklace.

Another faultless example of Linneys jewellery perfection. 

A little background on Le Diner en Blanc – it began nearly 30 years ago in Paris, the city of love, elegance and adventure. The dinners are quick to sell out and now pop up around the globe as flash chic-picnics in public spaces. This year, as usual, the secret location was revealed last minute. The Esplanade in Fremantle was the venue on Saturday night.

With the glittering Ferris wheel turning nearby, a sea of white approached the Esplanade as crowds of revellers followed their designated sign-bearer through the balmy night to the glammed-up location.

The picnic, well, more like a gourmet meal than a picnic, featured fresh-baked crusty bread, creamy cheddar cheese and a glass of sparkling Moet. However the peanut butter ice-cream was the taste-bud topper for the night.

Then the moment we’d all been waiting for - as event organisers announced Peta Preston, an image stylist, as the winner of the elegant Linneys pendant. Peta was wearing a white dress and a perfectly matched headpiece.

It was quite a feat to be crowned winner as everyone came dressed to the nines in their favourite white outfit. Deciding on a victor was tough!

Linneys is so proud to have been front and centre at this global dining spectacle. Thank you to everyone who participated in the mystery, the glamour and spontaneous fun.
