Last night, thousands of white-clad merrymakers flooded the Avenue of the Arts for a pop-up fancy picnic during the annual Dîner en Blanc. As day turned to night, and the section of Broad Street between Chestnut and Pine was set aglow by candle and street light, Racked photographer Brent Luvaas was pointing and shooting his way through the sea of all-white errthang.
Despite the restrictive dress code, participants showed their personalities via statement jewelry, lace, fascinators, feather boas, and suspenders—maybe even a walking stick or two. (Is that you, Jesus?) Click through 25 photos of the event, above.
