At this year’s Alliance Française De Chicago gala, guests had a roaring good time taking in the whimsy of 1920s Paris. The biennial event benefits the nonprofit institution, founded 120 years ago, which has become the Midwest’s leading French cultural and learning center. It’s dedicated to studying the language and exchange of friendship between the two countries, and has one of the largest private French libraries in the area.

The black-tie event was held at Chicago’s Four Seasons Hotel in May and was organized by the Women’s Board who hired HMR Designs to execute all the authentic details, from the Parisian flowers and décor to French-inspired cuisine. Live and silent auctions included international travel excursions, jewelry and other luxury items, and further entertainment was provided by the Stanley Paul Orchestra. Here is a look at sights from the night.
