The Cocoa Couture Fashion Show 2015 at MOSI in Tampa
By: Farrah Estrella
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to be a judge for the
3rd year in a row of the Cocoa Couture Fashion show that was held at
MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) in Tampa. The Fashion show is part of the
festivities of the Festival of Chocolate, a two day chocolate extravaganza that
is held at the museum every year.
you guys already know, I am HUGE chocolate lover. The Cocoa Couture Fashion Show
is also a competition were aspiring designers make chocolate inspired outfits with
at least 50% chocolate wrappers or chocolate itself, how cool is that!! Way cool.
Garments are also judged on their originality/creativity, overall construction
of the garment and choco-liciousness =).
Joining me as a judge were last year’s winner designer Jessica Martinez and Tampa Bay Times Journalist Amy Scherzer.
for kids as young as 7 years old to 14 years old, to encourage kids to be creative. Check out pictures from the event below.
