Bright buttercup yellow seems to have dominated the runway for S/S 2017 – reminding us of warm, fresh and lazy summer days.

Inspired by nature, this year’s trends also championed bright greens, pinks, oranges and blues moving away from more traditional colours.

The outdoors-feel of these new lines are making us long to shed the winter coats, and look forward to the fresh deliciousness of the season ahead.

One such designer whose collection amplified this garden-fresh trend was Simone Rocha. Her spring/summer range featured several sheer ensembles embellished with simple yellow buttercups (so pretty!).

Last night played host to one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar, The Fashion Awards 2016

Recently re-branded to its new title from The British Fashion Awards, the ceremony gives recognition to the best British and international creative talents within the industry. 

The event also attracts some of the biggest celebs from all over the globe, with the likes of Gigi Hadid, Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung attending this year's celebration.

This year, our very own Simone Rocha took home the coveted accolade of Best British Womenswear Designer

The Dublin born designer, and daughter of John Rocha, took home the award honouring "a British ready-to-wear designer who has been instrumental in leading women’s fashion in the past year."

While most fashion fans were delighted that an Irish woman won the coveted prize, some were quick to point out the fact that the prize was for a British designer.

However, Simone enjoys both Irish and British citizenship .

Derry native Jonathan Anderson was also nominated for best British women's wear designer, for his brand J.W Anderson.

The Northern Irish designer established J.W. Anderson in 2008 and shot to fame thanks to a triumphant first show at London Fashion Week and a hotly anticipated collaboration with Topshop.

The creative was also nominated for Best International Accessories Designer for his work with luxury brand Loewe.



Dublin-born designer Simone Rocha has always been notoriously private about her personal life.

So it's no surprise that she kept news of her first pregnancy secret until just two months before her due date, choosing to casually reveal it during a New York Times interview instead of via social media.

The interview, published this week, reveals that Ranelagh native Simone, is due in November. And as well as the business of becoming a mum for the first time, the young designer also has another extremely important project on the go – her first ever stand-alone clothes store.

For someone who's just celebrating her 29th birthday today (we love her cute nickname), she has achieved a lot so far.


Thank you team Ming

"I’m super thrilled,” she says of the decision to open a Simone Rocha store on London's Mount Street.

"This is a bricks-and-mortar of my identity and my inspirations and my research, and if anything it makes me feel more creative," she says.

For years all of Simone's work has been gearing up to fashion shows that last just minutes, but now she is building a permanent space for her work. "Whereas after a show you feel totally depleted. It just gives the whole collection a sense of place, and a real home," she explains.

Of course, much of Simone's drive and creativity comes from her home life. Her father John Rocha is a famed Irish designer who she ways always instilled a strong work ethic in her.

"There’s been some people in my life that really were very driven, like my family… and that gave me a lot of determination. They’ve always been like, ‘It’s all about your identity, and who you are, and what you want to say.’” she reveals.

Congrats Simone (and Grandad John)!
