Designer John Rocha was born in Hong Kong, but is currently based in Ireland. Rocha is known for his fascination with silhouette, surface, and texture. While other designers worry about recession-friendly fashion, Rocha’s fall collection displays a refined luxury. Using dark tweeds and furs, Rocha creates a collection of relaxed outerwear and cropped trousers. Interesting is Rocha’s use of fur to accent a blazer. It just proves that the economy can be hit hard, but there will always be those creative spirits who rebel.
