Why dress in black and not do a black dinner ?
It's a very good question to which we can only respond to in a very uncertain way. For an obscure reason, a dinner in black isn't very popular even when it can be super beautiful and super chic. It's enough to mix blacks, as there are many different shades ! So for a black dinner, dress up chic, decorate the table in black (black tableware, black cloth, black confetti, black candles and candle holders, black flowers and vases), cook in black (tapenade, black pudding...), a carafe of win, dress the chairs with black ribbon...
Is a dinner in black the equivalent of a dinner in white ?
Not exactly. But it's up to you to bring back the black dinner ! And for that, you need to show that black dinners aren't just for Halloween or New Year. You need to do them regularly, call up the gods of black, Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham and invite you friends who won't be able to say that they have nothing to wear !
