Coco Rocha Gives Australia’s Hottest Designers the Nod During MBFFSYD 2015 Visit

This year’s official ambassador of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney, Canadian model Coco Rocha, appeared exclusively in Australian designers while she was in Sydney for the role, handpicking all the designs herself in support of the growing fashion industry down under.

Sydney-born designer Dion Lee garnered much fanfare from Coco, proving he was a big favourite of hers with half of her choices coming from his collections. It’s the perfect fit considering Dion Lee’s tailoring techniques emphasise structure, functionality and innovation — an overall aesthetic that echoes Coco’s frequently photographed personal style.
