ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Models took to the Paris catwalk dressed in an array of fun short dresses and glamorous ball gowns on Tuesday but unlike the French capital’s usual designer fashion shows, these creations were made with chocolate. Corsets decorated with chocolate roses or butterflies and chocolate-splattered skirts sashayed down the runway — designs resulting from a collaboration between stylists and chocolatiers. French chocolatier Jeffrey Cagnes said his design, a chocolate corset covered in red and gold chocolate coins tied up with red ribbons, was inspired by ladybirds. But because of the heat in the venue, he had to be careful not to let his dresses melt. The fashion show marked the opening of the Salon du Chocolat, which gathers top chocolatiers, pastry makers and confectioners to show off their work.
