Rocha Celebrates 30 Years in Fashion.

John Rocha Moet CelebrationLast night at The Mansion House, Dublin 2, honorary Irishman and fashion designer, John Rocha joined designers Louise Kennedy and Pauric Sweeney in becoming the latest creative force to be honoured for his contribution to both Irish and world fashion. Moët & Chandon presented the designer with a personalised magnum of Champagne in recognition of his work of the past 3 decades.

Moët rep, Caroline Sleiman (pictured here with Rocha) said; “John’s designs are recognised all over the world for their quality and attention to detail. Every woman should own a piece from John Rocha, whether it’s clothing, accessories or an item for home”.

Over the past 30 years John Rocha has developed his brand, from a debut, Chinatown label and collections for AWear, Brown Thomas and Waterford Crystal, into interior designing, see the  the Morrison Hotel, D1, and opening has flagship store on Dover Street in London. This, according to Wikipedia, comprises a business worth a cool, €200M per year.

His latest womenswear collection for SS10 was shown at London Fashion Week last month and was a floaty, feminine celebration in soft pastel shades of pink, nude, fawn and pale blue. Tunic dresses and skirts were layered with cut chiffon to create a soft feather-like appearance; dress yokes were sheer and embellished with pearls and lace. John Rocha SS10 Catwalk web

Against the melee of chiffon, there were more severe, structured pieces; over-sized jackets, stiff-crocheted peplums, black trouser suits and city shorts. I don’t need to mention the glory of the headwear.
