London Fashion Week: John Rocha Spring / Summer 2010
Diverse collection was certainly impressive, oozing a distinctly delicate and dream-like quality.
RUNWAY REVIEW: Whimsical headpieces and ruffled mini dresses, contrasted with sculpted, sharper silhouettes made up John Rocha’s Spring/Summer 10 collection. A palette of black and white was broken up with a rainbow of colours in shades of coral, green, peach, umber, almond and blue, dusted throughout with sparkling gold sequins.
Rocha used a range of textures to demonstrate his craftsmanship and to create a varied, interesting result including hand crochet that was treated and sculpted to create impressive silhouettes. Sheer panels were hidden throughout the collection within sculpted dresses and tops, adding an unexpected softness to sharp, clean lines.

Rocha had his work cut out with an A-list front row including milliner, Stephen Jones and Prime Minister’s Wife, Sarah Brown, but his diverse collection of jackets, trousers, jumpsuits, dresses and skirts was certainly impressive, oozing a distinctly delicate and dream-like quality. – Kirsty Armstrong
