My third show on Day 2 of LFW AW13 with Vodafone VIP was John Rocha.
I remember a couple of years ago having a ticket to John Rocha and not bothering to go. Not out of sheer laziness, more because I had eight shows that day and wasn’t well enough to be working at all but was still trying to pretend I was. I had looked at my schedule and thought John Rocha would be the best choice of show to miss.
What had I based that on? Debenhams.
When I was a little fashion bub who knew no better, I saw John Rocha as a Debenhams designer. And just a Debenhams designer.
When I watched the John Rocha stream from my hotel I couldn’t believe what I was missing. WHAT A DOUCHE. It would probably have been my favourite show of the entire season and I had chosen to watch it from bed.
Since that fateful day, I’ve never missed his show.
The things this man can do with fabric is entirely mental. It’s ridiculous, it really is. People shouldn’t be that talented.
Did you know you wanted a pink fuzzy coat? I didn’t, until I saw this season’s show.
Did you know that weeping widow funeral chic can be desirable? It can be.
And OMG the green coat. THE GREEN COAT. When I posted this on Twitter y’all went mental for it.
It was just perfect.
The pictures don’t do the garments justice, you had to see the way they moved and how beautifully big the silhouettes were. AND THE RIDIC AWESOME FABRICS! If you watch one video from yesterday’s shows, make it this one.
Enough of my iPhone pics, these were my top ten looks shot properly…
Watch the show highlights below, you can tell your mates you were there! They’ll never know…
