Intricate Chocolate Dresses

Downton Abbey's Caroline McCall Designs an Art Deco-Inspired Number

— October 28, 2014 — Lifestyle
Those not familiar with Caroline McCall's name will now know her as an accomplished chocolate dress designer and not the wardrobe stylist of 'Downton Abbey.' In this case, she has designed a chocolate dress in honor of Chocolate Week in the United Kingdom. A work of art, as much if not more than her designs for the hit television show, it took three months to create.

Made out of 132 pounds of chocolate, the chocolate dress is inspired by the Art Deco style. The texture looks like leather and the layers take on a flower petal shape many women will wish they could twirl in. Instead, they will simply be able to look forward to chomping on the chocolate dress once the festivities are all said and done.
Trend Themes
1. Chocolate Fashion - The trend of designing fashion items made entirely out of chocolate opens up opportunities for creative confectionery and fashion collaborations.
2. Artistic Edible Creations - The trend of creating intricate and visually stunning edible creations, like the chocolate dress, presents opportunities for unique culinary experiences and collaborations between artists and chefs.
3. Innovative Event Celebrations - The trend of incorporating elaborate and visually stunning creations, such as the chocolate dress, into event celebrations provides opportunities for event planners and caterers to offer unique and memorable experiences for their clients.
Industry Implications

2. Culinary Arts - The culinary arts industry can embrace the trend of creating visually stunning edible creations to enhance dining experiences and attract customers looking for unique culinary adventures.
3. Event Planning - The event planning industry can incorporate elaborate and visually striking creations, like the chocolate dress, into event celebrations to provide clients with unforgettable experiences and differentiate themselves in the market.
