Irish designer Simone Rocha chose to showcase her Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection in the grand surroundings of Lancaster House in London. The collection was influenced by the work of photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, with knots and braids, cross-body straps, bodices in clear plastic, and dresses with silken strands running across bare backs.
FLOWY DRESSES IN A FLORAL PRINT SHIMMIED DOWN THE RUNWAY.
PUFFY FABRICS OFFERED A STARK CONTRAST TO THE PRIM SILHOUETTES.
GAUZY FABRICS AND RUFFLED TRIMS ADDED A SENSE OF FEMININITY.
