This 100% white choclate dress was created for London chocolatiers Rococo to celebrate National Chocolate Week. Modelled by Lianne Nagel from Britain’s Next Top Model this one dress that really is good enough to eat.

Here’s a closer look at how we made it.

Chantal Coady and Ian Stuart of Ian Stuart Brides had been talking about creating a chocolate wedding dress for years, and Chocolate Week 2009 seemed the perfect opportunity to combine Ian’s distinctive style and Rococo’s creative approach to chocolate.

The dress started with underskirts and one of Ian’s bodices dipped in chocolate. Laurent, our chocolatier, made panels of intricate white chocolate curls and truffles to decorate the bodice. More panels were layered up on netting to cover the skirt.
