Chocolate News: Paris Salon du Chocolat Roundup
This year’s fashion show at the Salon du Chocolat in Paris was probably the most stunning and creative to date. The fashion designers gave a burlesque atmosphere to the entire show, and there was a full array of top top models to show their creations to their best advantage.
I’m melting! Chocolate catwalk show comes a cropper after model’s dress falls off. The Daily Mail has one of the most complete coverages of the chocolate dress fashion show, with a full photo show, including the several shots of Karine Ferri’s dress as it gradually desconstructed as she walked down the runway.
Trendhunter show a great closeup of the gladiator bikini that 2005 Miss France Cindy Fabre paraded.
Japan was the featured chocolate country this year, and Japanese Susumu Koyama, 47, was even named “Best Foreign Chocolatier” — winning out over top masters from celebrated chocolate-making nations like Belgium and Switzerland.
The Telegraph has a great photo of Anca Radici, with a close-up of her chocolate stockings and shoes.
ShoppingBlog shows some highlights in video, including the deconstructing dress.
Good photos to be seen on Out and About in Paris as well.
