I promised video of the Lake Champlain Chocolates’ chocolate fashions and here you are. While it doesn’t show the behind the scenes making of these fashions (that video will need a little extra work I’m sorry to say) it does give a more comprehensive picture of just what chocolate fashion can look like.

These pieces, created by our chocolate sculptor Emily Walton Jones, are made entirely of 100% edible chocolate – the exact same chocolate you find in our chocolate bars and confections. In fact, the milk chocolate is the same as our 34% cocoa content Signature Milk Chocolate Bar and the dark is our 54% cocoa content Signature Dark Chocolate Bar. There is no molding chocolate and there are no inedible pieces holding them together. Amazing, no?

While no one has actually attempted to don one these outfits, I can’t help but think how fun it’d be to try. Come on. Admit it. You were thinking the same thing!

Chocolate Fashion Show

Posted on September 8, 2008 11:07 AM by Leann
Last year, I told you about the Art Hop which is a neighborhood art celebration where folks can tour local galleries, meet artists, enjoy a variety of art-related events and gain a better appreciation for this wonderful artistic community we live in.

This year, Lake Champlain Chocolates added a new layer - a fashion-themed chocolate exhibit and demo at our factory location. It tied in nicely to the Art Hop fashion show held just across our parking lot. Our own in-house chocolate sculptor Emily Jones and chocolatier Kirk Weed created some incredibly beautiful fashion pieces that are currently on display. The image above is just one piece of the amazing work they did. To see more, visit our photostream on Flickr.

Hopefully, in the coming weeks, I will have a short video of a little behind-the-scenes making of the fashions as well as the finished products. And as always, if you’re in our neck of the woods, stop in to see what great sculptures are currently on display.
