From floor-sweeping gowns to eye-catching shorter dresses, models strutted down a Brussels catwalk in an array of unusual designs  - all adorned with chocolate.

The daily fashion show, which saw teams of chefs and designers working together to create chocolate outfits, is a highlight of the "Salon du Chocolat" chocolate fair in the Belgian capital, which this year ran from Feb. 10-12.



The sweet-toothed could  see chocolatiers or chocolate makers at work and taste samples. Belgian chocolate makers are known for their pralines.

At the fair's  night opening, specially designed  dresses were showcased under the theme "Back to the Future".



Different kinds of chocolate in all shapes and sizes were used to decorate the dresses. One short red frock had small balls of chocolate attached while another, longer gown was decorated with chocolate leaves. Even accessories, such as hats, bore the sweet.

Some 80 chocolatiers  presented their work at the fair, which also has versions in other cities around the world.
