Supermodel Lily Cole loves Simone Rocha
Irish designer’s Rocha’s designs captivate Lily Cole
Like father, like daughter. Designer Simone Rocha has proven that she’s cut from the same cloth as her father John.
The 25-year old designer, who is known for her use of contrasts and unusual fabrics, has been making her mark on the London fashion scene for quite some time.
But Lily Cole’s appearance at the Cannes film festival in one of Simone’s dresses is sure to catapult the designer into fashion’s stratosphere.
24-year-old Lily wore Simone’s white lace dress with mint underlay to promote her new film, ‘Confessions of a Child of the Century’.
The model turned actress says that she doesn’t personally follow trends and prefers to buy designs like Simone’s instead which she says she’ll like forever.
“There are so many great designers out here.
The classics like Prada and Chanel consistently roll out brilliant things and I recently found Simone Rocha, she’s got some really interesting things,” the actress said
This is not the first time that Simone’s creations have been worn by an A-lister. Last month, up-and-coming singer Rita Orr wore Rocha for a Radio One appearance, while Lady Gaga has been seen in some of Simone’s collection twice, something that surprised the designer.”
I never dreamed that could happen,” Simone says, who ideally would like to dress actresses Chloe Sevigny and Charlotte Gainsbourg, singer Patti Smith and her mum, Odette.
