What is it you love about this Rochas dress? "I was brought up in Lebanon, where French fashion is very prevalent. From a young age, French couture was all around me. I used to dress up in my mum’s evening clothes, devour magazines, and as I got older, I saved to buy pieces. It was love at first sight when I saw this Rochas dress. The detail is amazing: from the cut-out back to the shoulders and the pleating on the skirt. It’s elegant and timeless, but I also love that it can be dressed down with a cardigan or jumper and become a different outfit completely."
