Chocoholics took their sweet tooth to town Thursday (January 17) with the "World Chocolate Wonderland" fashion show in Shanghai where designers displayed their artistic love for the cocoa bean. Clad in elegant edible garments, models made their way down the runway, showing off the latest chocolate designs by local chocolate fashion fanatics. Models said the delicate "chocolate" elements made walking the catwalk even harder. As beautiful and delicious as the chocolate designs prove to be, putting together a fashionable and delicious piece was tricky for the designers. According to the event's press release, the "World Chocolate Wonderland" fashion show was launched by cosmetics company M.A.C. This is Shanghai's second official chocolate fashion show--the first was held in December of 2011. The chocolate fashion show is only the opening act of the "World Chocolate Wonderland" theme park, which features an endless display of chocolate creations for fans and observers alike.
