Models Strut Down Runway In Dresses Made Of Chocolate

Models sashayed down a runway wearing gowns and corset dresses adorned with chocolate to kick off Paris’ annual Salon du Chocolat fair, where chocolatiers faced the challenge of stopping their creations from melting on the catwalk. The Salon du Chocolat bills itself as the world’s “largest event dedicated to chocolate and cocoa.”  The annual convention – also known as a chocolate-lover’s idea of heaven – kicked off in Paris, France on October 27 with a rather unique fashion show

“The difficulties we find with a dress made of chocolate are always about contact with the body, which has a temperature of 37 degrees,” said French chocolatier Joel Patouillard. “Chocolate melts at 30 degrees, so it is quite simple: chocolate must absolutely not touch the body.”
