Fashion Forward: How Tech Is Revamping the Runway

Coco-rocha-image-850

Coco Rocha has come a long way since she was spotted by a modeling scout at an Irish dancing competition. Since then, she’s become a fixture on the fashion scene — appearing on the runways for Marc Jacobs, Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Anna Sui, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Balenciaga.

More recently, though, she’s become a fixture on the social media scene, positioning herself as one of the most digitally-savvy models of her generation. Hers was one of the first fashion insider blogs in 2008, and Rocha was an early adopter of Twitter, Pose and Instagram. Across all social platforms, Rocha has more than 7 million followers on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tencent Weibo, Sina Weibo and others, earning her street cred as an socially savvy supermodel and role model for anyone looking to learn a thing or two about branding (she runs her accounts herself, and the New York Times recently noted her prowess). Her social savvy explains why Rocha will soon be a coach on Oxygen’s upcoming show, The Face, where she’ll teach aspiring models how to represent a brand and build one’s own.

Her social media deftness and high-fashion expertise are also why we thought it appropriate for Coco Rocha to curate the fashion category of Mashable’s Innovation Index. Take a look at her picks below and then cast your vote in Fashion and the 14 other categories.

Creating A Great Profile On Facebook! - By Coco Rocha

A few weeks ago my friends at Facebook asked me to create an infomercial on how users can create the most dynamic and appealing profile pictures for their new Facebook Timelines. The end result was this video in which I outline some of the common mistakes of profile photography as well as teach you how to pose - “like a model.” 

If you liked this video, please post this to your Facebook page and show me how you pose by putting a link in the comments below. 

AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT “LETTERS TO HAITI” - In February Behati Prinsloo and I took a group of friends down to Port-au-Prince Haiti to assess the progress made in the year since the devastating earthquake had ravaged the country. What we found was a group of very hopefull children surrounded by a very desperate situation. In September my husband James and I will be releasing a short film we have created about our experience in Haiti but you can watch the trailer right now on YouTube.P.S Notice the children in their adorable “Team Cohati” t-shirts courtesy Modelina.com
