Hola John Rocha

The first show of the second day of London Fashion Week was John Rocha. After four tube transfers and a giant coffee, I squeezed my way into the BFC tent for the playful collection. It started with a strong showing of black - textured black, matte black, shiny black - usually accented with exagerrated versions of those Marc Jacobs Fall 08 crown/headband pieces. Then he moved into orange party dresses and swingy sheer dresses (almost hooped skirts) with awesome puffy Minnie Mouse-like rhinestone collars and a selection of baby pink dresses, gold shifts and a few pieces of fur. The models wore turquoise eyeshadow in the same style as the orange stripes at Vena Cava - a look we can't wait to attempt come spring. It was the absolute longest runway show I've ever been to - at least fifty looks - in the absolute hottest venue. By the time I bolted out to catch the Fashion Bus to Charles Anastase I'd literally stripped down to my slip.
