John Rocha justified his status as a fashion idol with his new Spring/Summer 2013 collection at London Fashion Week.
The Ireland-based designer unveiled an ultra-feminine range that featured frills, demi-couture textures and layers of organza in his signature voluminous style.
While the silhouettes remained simple, Rocha, known for his distinctive edge, impressed with the sheer technique that goes into his sculptural creations.
Rocha has stuck to his forte of creating ladylike designs, making his garments resemble a beautiful garden of pale lavenders, mints, and lemons.
He also offered contrast in the form of gun metal, champagne, and black and white ensembles in an array of luxurious fabrics.
He played with proportions and experimented with strips of frilled cotton lace without moving too far from his trusty colour palette.
To complement the whimsical theme, models took to the catwalk in large, matching cloud-like hats sculpted from folds of organza.
Nude lipstick and peep toe heels completed the look.
The show-stopping number was a sculptural red strapless dress with an exaggerated tulip shape. Its large ruffles imitated the frail petals of a flower.
