What's almost as good as eating chocolate? I'd assume wearing it! After all fashion and chocolate are two of my favorite things! Check out the latest trends to walk the runway made entireley of chocolate…if they don't melt. The 13th annual Chocolate Show New York features fashions designs made out of chocolate, and through Sunday you can catch all the couture confections on display.
One of our favorites contestants from “Top Chef: Just Desserts” Zac Young (we love his desserts at Flex Mussels) worked with designer Nicole Romano to create a dress made of hand strung bonbons coated in edible glitter. For those of us who prefer to eat our chocolate, don’t miss New York’s sweets elite who will be doing delicious demonstrations (and giving out tasting samples!) — Jacques Torres and Billy’s Bakery are among the 65 chocolate vendors setting up shop!
