TateShots: Simone Rocha
Daughter of irish superstar designer, John Rocha, Simone Rocha sites both her mother and Louise Bourgois as the main inspirations in her work.
In this short movie she discusses the link between the textile artwork, tactile feel of the fabrics and the interiors of garment construction as a skeleton for a collection. Both the physical and aesthetic properties of the selected fabrics are key to the success of the collection.
Simone makes clothes for people to wear but wants the pieces to be really beautiful to look at. You can see her S/S 2014 collection shown recently at London Fashion Week, here.
