2010 Chocolate Show New York "The Fashion"

I had the pleasure of attending the 2010 Chocolate Show Saturday November 13th for the first time. It was quite an experience for a chocolate and baker lover! In the great area of Chelsea, it was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion at West 18th Street. 
The show had more than 50 participants, including top chocolate companies,chocolatiers, award winning chefs and authors. If you could not attend this year, I would highly mark your calendars for next years show. It is a very fun time!!
The clothes really just took my breathe away. It is so amazing what these artists can do with the wonderful confection known as chocolate: 
as you walked in, these dresses were there to welcome you

this dress was made by Zac Young, pastry chef for Flex Mussels and a “Top Chef: Just Desserts” contestant, worked with designer Nicole Romano to create a dress made of hand strung bonbons coated in edible glitter

this was just gorgeous and very colorful indeed 

an up close of one of the dresses....that is all chocolate....just amazing

these wings were just beautiful in person 
this dress was really beautiful and below is the background 

Would you wear a cocoa bean bag ? 
this gave a whole new meaning to bad hair day...details below...

great idea to go green in clothing!!
these gowns were runway ready

all made of chocolate and I just was going crazy! loove that handbag!! 

another beauty....the work that goes into these dresses is unimaginable

this was a huge chunk of chocolate and the stand was even chocolate that it sat on

the back was more amazing than the front.....what artwork!!

this was featured on one of the morning shows and the umbrella is all chocolate...the part which looks like the sky is sugar paper...but you knew that, right??

we were able to get really close to this smelled divine....

how on earth do they do this?????

this one was just so darn colorful 

did someone say Chocolate Chanel? I think so ....this one is ever so lovely !!

I wished I could have shown these a bit sooner but many photos to edit and put together for you. The Chocolate Show is a real place of wonder and amazement and I would suggest it to anyone visiting the city during this time. In addition to New York and Paris, the show is now worldwide in cities such as Tokyo * Shanghai * Moscow * Madrid * Cairo * so if you are near any one of these great cities, you may want to get yourself a ticket. More to come on the chocolate show....please stay tuned!!

Favorite chocolate is anything dark :)

I could never control myself there, not until I ate everything in sight and then dragged away dramatically. haha.

In regards to your Bendel inside photo taking question--they don't allow it. They even asked me what I was doing and it was during the press time that allowed us to shoot!!

Wow. That must have been an amazing event. I haven't been to NYC in years but that Chocolate show could definitely entice me to make a trip. Awesome photos too.
