We held our first Winter Formal event at Pullman Tokyo Tamachi on December 5th, 2020. While it’s normal in the States to experience formal dances in high school, Japanese high schools don’t have this custom. We thought it would be fun to try a throwback-style formal event where our Japanese guests could experience an American high school tradition, while people like me could relive our high school memories.

イベントプロダクションチームLa Fondue Tokyo初のウィンターフォーマルを無事開催することができました。Pullman Tokyoの9階はテラススペースもあるということで、コロナ感染予防対策も兼ねてこちらのロケーションを選びました。アメリカの高校生はプロムなどのフォーマルダンスを経験するのは普通ですが、日本の文化にはないということで一度このようなイベントを再現してみたいと思いました。私みたいにアメリカで育った人にとっては、懐かしい感じのイベントにしたかったです。

Our main attraction was definitely the festive photo booth space with a satin backdrop and pretty balloons. I think we did a pretty good job with this under a budget. We had Davis Uesugi Koffee as our live painter in the lounge area. The DJs threw it back with 90s and 2000s throwback hits, and we announced the best-dressed at the party as the Winter Formal prince and princess. We can’t wait to do a Prom event in the spring!
