Founder of Le Dîner en Blanc.
In 1988, after spending a few years abroad, François Pasquier wanted to organize a picnic to reconnect with old friends. The concept was simple: "Bring a meal, and bring a new friend." Seeing as his garden was too small to receive all the guests, he told them to convene at the Bois de Boulogne and to dress in white, so they could find each other. This friendly gathering became so popular that it grew over time. Thirty years later, François Pasquier still organizes the Parisian edition of Le Dîner en Blanc with those same friends.
