The Story: Simone Rocha’s aesthetic is the epitome of romance, known for her voluminous gowns and intricate, ethereal embroideries. Set inside the gothic-surroundings of the medieval Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great, Rocha’s S/S22 collection was an ode to motherhood, having recently given birth to her second daughter. Rocha’s penchant for romantic layering came through in full force; combining layers of featherweight silks, broderie anglaise, gauze and voluminous taffeta laced with ribbon. A palette of white, lilac mint and pink presented a multitude of tonal options for next seasons wedding-wear.
