After a week of tastings galore taking place across the country, Chocolate Week sadly came to an end at the weekend.

The grand finale to Chocolate Week was the world renowned Salon du Chocolat Chocolate Fashion Show, coming to London for the very first time. That’s right – a Chocolate Fashion Show.

Master chocolatiers had collaborated with fashion designers to create stunning couture outfits made from and inspired by chocolate.

The fashion show was truly unbelievable! From chocolate dresses, show-stopping headpieces to a bikini and wedding dress featuring a chocolate flower bouquet – it was all simply fabulous.

My favourites were the collaborations between master chocolatier Marc Demarquette and award-winning English heritage milliner Vivien Sheriff.

Artisan du Chocolat and wedding dress designer Sabina Motasem transformed her ‘Alaya’ dress with white, caramel and dark chocolate with embellished chocolate pearls and sugar diamonds, accessorised with a Kelly Spence tulle veil trimmed with intricate chocolate lace. The finishing touch was a flower bouquet made out of chocolate – amazing!

Then finally the wonderful creation between Lindt Excellence and chocolate artist Paul Wayne Gregory and Graduate Fashion Week 2013 winner Lauren Smith, who joined forces for the ‘Eternal Diamond’ dress.

All this talk of chocolate has made me very excited about our very own chocolate collaboration with the wonderful Melt Chocolate. Just thinking about the tasting sessions (for research purposes of course), I already feel in chocolate heaven.
