We could not be more proud of Irish designer Simone Rocha. ?Not only has she established herself as a dominant female force within the industry, but she’s achieved it all with remarkable speed and competency. And last night her graft was awarded British womenswear designer of the?year at The Fashion Awards, 23 years after father John won the award.

Born in Dublin, the Irish-Chinese designer launched her lucrative career six years ago following the footsteps of her father and designer John Rocha. Her delicate and distinctive personality and style has grown and matured alongside her career and has successfully planted herself as a top international designer – but her heritage very much still calls back to Dublin.

Commenting on Rocha’s distinctive creative and often whimsical style and direction, Fashion Editor Marie Kelly says that although her collections heavily feature dresses, “they feel utterly fresh and offer a wonderful reimagination of something that can easily feel saner. She challenges the consumer without alienating them”
