The Salon du Chocolat invented the unique and audacious idea of associating the finest fashion designers and the most talented chocolatiers to create exceptional couture masterpieces.


In 2013 the Chocolate Fashion Show celebrated the magic of chocolate through its fanciful chocolate dresses that are a perfect balance between renowned designers with young talents discovered by Talons Aiguilles. This style cell from the EDHEC Business School is behind Lille’s Young Designers contest, which has just had its 20th anniversary. Every year since 1993, the contest has been discovering budding stylists from across Europe.


Every day at 5:00pm in the Cacao Show space, visitors discovered the delicious and chocolaty interpretations of:

Arnaud Lahrer & Lauren Bitar, Emmanuel Ryon for Cacao Barry & Christophe Guillarmé, Michel Panariello for La Chocolaterie de Puyricard & Benjamin Bout for Ben Brass, François Pralus & Nathalie Vigne, Franck Kestener & Nathalie Erkan, Frédéric Cassel & Philippe Model, Jacques Bellanger & Gaelle Verriest, Jean-Paul Hévin & Maria Boyarovskaya, Hironobu Tsujiguchi for Le Chocolat de H & Jean Doucet, Christelle Brua for Le Pré Catelan & Sonia Philippot for JEÏTO, Bruno Rouly for Les Délices d’un Gourmand & Stéphane Martello, Philippe Bernachon & Florence Soerensen, Jean-Marc Rué and Keiko Orihara for Monsieur Chocolat & Manon Bresson-Cancel, Sébastien Bouillet & Nicolas Fafiotte, Patrice Chapon & Christophe-Alexandre Docquin, Stéphane Bonnat & Valérie Pache, Vincent Guerlais & Selimetu Jane, Cémoi & Wenderson Alves de Melo.
