Using her innate artistic sensibility and keen prowess, Rocha revisited the 19th century for her FW18 collection. This season, the clothes were enchanting as gold brocade pantsuits, voluminous lace dresses bedecked in bows, and slick laminated coats all made a grand entrance. For the finale, Rocha ended on a high note as a medley of white lace frocks and black ruffled coats trailed the runway, closing Rocha’s ethereal homage to the opulence of the 19th century.
