Chocolate Dress for Sweet Charity Benefit

Chocolate Dress for Sweet Charity Benefit

West Potomac Academy Fashion Design students are designing and creating the chocolate dress to be worn in the Sweet Charity chocolate fashion show benefit on Monday, May 11, at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C. The benefit will support Books From the Heart, a program of the Heart of America Foundation, to provide books to needy children and schools in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

Corporate pastry chef Anil Rohira will adorn the students’ chocolate dress in Swiss chocolates, candy flowers, and macaroons. The fashion show will feature the four finalists and the winning dress, all from West Potomac Academy; the winning dress will be modeled by Kate Michael, Miss District of Columbia 2006.
