Famous actors and sports celebrities were among French stars who paraded the stage at the Paris Chocolate Salon on Friday.
The unusual fashion show attracted dozens of journalists and visitors. “We saw that the Salon du Chocolat was also a place where there was artistic creation, even great artistic creation. There are dresses, beautiful sculptures and an exchange of trades. Fashion is exchanged for chocolate. We would never have believed that a few years ago,” said Jean-Francois Girardin, president of the Societe Nationale des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France.
The festival also featured masterclasses from emerging young talents and experienced chocolatiers.
The festival is being held for the 27th time and will run from October 28 to November 1.
