Paris Chocolat Couture

I wanted to show you the Paris Salon du Chocolat fashions before they melt..
The star of the show was La Maison du Chocolat's rain(?) coat with umbrella. The matching black Bull dog can be seen here... The outfit went with their new Cubism Collection of chocolate.
The other gowns were less whimsical and looked like you might actually wear them out of the show to some grand affair...
A very pretty creation by Chocolats-Pralus.
But so much..
Dark brown... Well they do look better on the models than off...
Do chocolate dresses have to be dark brown? I loved the whimsy and wild flights of imagination of the New York Chocolate fashion show. I guess I'm a little biased :)

Wow. I just discovered your blog through a random click in this week's Blogs of Note.

And what do I see first? Two things I love: chocolate AND couture!!!

The dress I would wear (and never eat): the second-to-last picture. It is yummy on many levels!

I would like to link this entry (and the chocolate dips one) on my blog next time I do one of my random roundups.

Thanks for the visual treat!

well, they DO say, brown is the new black... but i agree, couldn't they tint up some chocolate?

Am I the only one who wants to know what they do with the outfits after they make em? :O

Abnay said...

I can't believe they're made of chocolate! I'm with Robyn, what do they do with them after the show?? Nel

There is a chocolate shop here called Belle Fleur.. and I thought the chocolate Violin and sheet music (life size) was amazing.
But these really "take the cake".

How do they do it? Its an art form for sure!

I am all for the Pralus...And, by the way, chocolate is my color in clothing, too!

I think there may be a very short shelf life on these gowns..
And on 2nd thought they do look pretty delicious.
A girl can change her mind non?
