An extravagant chocolate fashion show kicked off the fifth annual Salon du Chocolat Thursday afternoon.Marina Rizkallah, who designed one of the dresses, told The Daily Star that she used "festivals and carnivals" as the inspiration for a colorful creation. Illuminating her dress were fluorescent yellow details, while deep red wings rose up from behind all made from chocolate.Wearable chocolate was not the only trend on display at Thursday's opening.Between the hot and cold months are also different holidays, such as Christmas and Ramadan, that influence how much chocolate is sold and consumed.Chocolate has not traditionally been a staple in Lebanese cuisine, making Lebanon's market harder to break into than in countries with a long tradition of chocolate consumption.Salon du Chocolat will be presenting a number of events until it closes Saturday evening, including a chocolate sculpture competition and live shows where festivalgoers can learn how to make their own creations. The chocolaty fashion pieces will be on display until the end of the festival.
