Ms Rocha was one of the first to arrive at last night's glitzy ceremony held in London's Coliseum.

The designer won the Emerging Talent for Womenswear and looked pretty in pink, in pleated dress and matching coat.

She wasn't the only Irish trendsetter on the red carpet though – Derry native JW Anderson walked away with the New Establishment Award. Last year, he took home the gong for Best Emerging Talent.

And Irish flame-haired TV Presenter Angela Scanlon was also in attendance, grilling the fashion elite on the red carpet.

"I was doing the red carpet coverage and it was great," Angela said. "I got to meet loads of my all time favourites."
