Do you believe in fairytales?
Ok so I know in today's world it can sometimes be hard to find that fairytale dream - but let me tell you if ever such a place truly existed well I might just have found it!
I was lucky enough to recently attend the Concordia Ball in Vienna - The Press Club Concordia, an organisation of Austrian journalists and writers, has been holding a traditional ball at Vienna's City Hall for over 150 years now.
As one of the few summer balls in Vienna, the Concordia Ball was held on Friday, June 2nd 2017 and celebrated its 120th anniversary. While it honours old ball traditions, the organisers introduce a new exciting topic from all over the world every year. "We're building bridges between people, opinions and cultures", says Astrid Zimmermann, secretary general of the Press Club Concordia.
This year's Concordia Ball skillfully combined Indian Bollywood spirit with the very best of Viennese ball tradition under the motto 'Come, dance with me!'.
What i loved most about this ball other than the decadent venue - amazing dresses and dashingly good looking men! Was the overarching message - about accepting each other despite race, gender or religion and it's quest to make the world a better place
Here is a video of the highlights from the evening and some snapshots too!
I think I'm ready for the Ball!
and a little grand piano always adds a little extra decadence to an evening!!
looking on in awe of the sheer beauty of this Vienna ball
Thank you Vienna for a spectacular evening - and what better place to get Ball ready than the Grand Ferdinand hotel
reflecting on the night and brilliant journalists I met
Until next time Vienna #DontChange
