The best attended event at the Salon du Chocolat is the daily fashion show. This year twelve models walked on the catwalk at the Zurich chocolate fair, showing the newest creations of fashion designers and maître-chocolatiers.
Some of the duos, who came from Switzerland and France, were Laurent Robatel from Villars Maître Chocolatier & Marie-Hélène Prongué from Ecole de Couture of Fribourg, Maître Chocolatier Vincent Guerlais with designer Selimetu Jane, Chocolaterie Favarger with Victoria von Fliedner, Confiserie Sprüngli wtith Edgar Balseca and Maison Boissier Paris-Tokyo.
Two hours before the show the models were busy getting ready backstage with the teams of devoted make up artists and hair dressers so that the maître-chocolatiers and designers could come for the fitting and give the last tips.
The theme of this year show was the magical world of chocolate. Some designers created colourful, long and elaborated dresses while others made them shorter, showing more lingerie, longline bras and garter belts. There were many beautiful hats, bags and elegant shoes. Some models wore feathers, wings, long trails and even claws!
Former Miss Bern, Yvonne, modelling for Villars Chocolatier, made an impressive opening with her tall boots, feathers and long dark cape. The model from Maison Boissier looked like Cenderella in her pink outfit with a necklace of multicolored chocolates.
After the show the ladies wandered around the chocolatiers stands to show their dresses to the many enthusiastic visitors.
After three days the Miss Choco was elected. The winner of this year Salon du Chocolat is Rahel Anyass. She is the lucky winner of a one year contract with the model agency Biba.
Some of the dresses will be shown at the 20th Salon du Chocolat in Paris in October.
