Simone Rocha Star of London Fashion Week

Designer Simone Rocha states her latest collection was born of her own experience of the strange, sleepless world of new parenthood. Her daughter Valentine was three weeks old when the designer began her collection for autumn/winter 2016. She stated “I wanted a spooky kind of insomniac, unravelling feel to the show.’ She achieved that with a collection both beautiful and odd, with gold-embroidered tulle aprons over neat tweed trouser suits, puff-sleeved nightgowns, sparkling greatcoats and ‘witchy shoes’. Rocha loves the grandeur of Victoriana and is a sucker for a costume drama and a classic novel.
