Diner en blanc Toronto

This is what a 1500 person flashmob picnic looks like

Diner en Blanc returned for its second Toronto edition this past Thursday evening. The international, pop-up dinner series turned 50 this year, having started in Paris by a group of friends looking for an elegant and easy way reunite in a park: hence the brilliant and eye catching dress code. In contrast to last year's dinner at Fort York, this year's location proved to be far more urban, gritty and less secluded. While it wasn't an inherently beautiful venue, it made the dazzling spectacle feel far more impactful, ephemeral and special.

Check out 25 highlights from the white-attired affair in this slideshow.
