Simone Rocha: Irish Tradition at London Fashion Week SS20
Simone Rocha presented one of her most beautiful collections yet in a whimsical Spring 2020 RTW London Fashion Week runway show earlier this month.
Rocha is known for her structured yet flowing layered silhouettes and dainty netted ruffles, eyelet cuts and oftentimes hyper-feminine garments. This year, Rocha maintained the core of her stylistic identity while escalating the presentation to incorporate a cultural tradition from her home country of Ireland. With the quintessential ruffles and sweeping silhouettes characteristic of many Rocha collections, she integrated new and varying elements to hearken back to the Irish wren-boys who hunt and kill a wren bird the day after Christmas and knock on neighborhood doors demanding money.
