Photo Coverage: Broadway Meets Chocolate at NY Chocolate Show!
It was an event too good to be true: Chocolate and Broadway coming together as one! The 14th Annual Chocolate Show, which opened Wednesday November 8th and ran through Sunday November 13th, featured a runway show with Broadway themed costumes made out of chocolate!
Chocolatiers and pastry chefs, from some of New York's best restaurants, teamed up with award winning costume designers to create the delicious dresses that walked the runway Wednesday night. The dresses were then featured throughout the showroom for the rest of the chocolate show. Some of the participating costume designers were William Ivey Long, Anita Yavic (Chinglish), and Gregg Barnes.
A celebration of all things chocolate, the show featured more than 65 national and international chocolate companies showcasing chocolate and chocolate-inspired creations available to sample and purchase. For additional information, please visit www.chocolateshow.com.
