When you talk about Canadian style icons, Coco Rocha is one of the first names on your list. Today, she’s renowned as one of the most popular models in the world, but it wasn’t so long ago that we remember her as the lanky girl from B.C. who landed the runways of Paris and New York.
We all know the story by now — Rocha was discovered at an Irish dance competition, then whisked away to the world of high fashion. But it’s not as if every new model gets to walk down the runways for Marc Jacobs. No, Rocha made a name for herself by being versatile, easy to get along with and hard-working, in an industry when all three can sometimes come in short supply. For the first few months of her career, Rocha worked tirelessly, doing catalog modeling in Asia — dozens of shoots in a day, and putting in work learning the ins and outs of the industry. So when Vogue Italia came calling, she was more than ready.
Recently Target asked me to come on board as guest stylist for the month of May and put together looks that I thought represented my style. Check out more, including a behind-the-scenes video, on Target’s website and, of course, go to Target if you like these head-to-toe looks and get them for yourself!
I saw this video a few days back and fell in love. The music, the fashion, the dance… such a perfect little film lasting just 100 seconds. It makes me realize what a drop in the bucket my 8 years working in fashion has been. Please do have a look.
