Scouted at an Irish dancing competition when she was just 13, Coco Rocha’s modelling career has never lost momentum. Her big break came when, after a chance meeting with photographer Steven Meisel, she was picked for an editorial with Gemma Ward which landed her the cover of Vogue Italia in 2006.

Soon after Coco became a runway staple, walking for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Christian Lacroix and Emanuel Ungaro. In 2007 Coco Irish danced her way down Jean-Paul Gaultier’s catwalk leading fashion honchos to dub it ‘The Coco Moment’ and declare that a supermodel had arrived. 

Since her modelling career began Coco has starred in campaigns for Chanel, D&G, Dior, Lanvin, Versace and Zac Posen among countless others. But proving that she’s more that a pretty face and a killer pose Coco has also been awarded for her philanthropic work, making a documentary, ‘Letter to Haiti’ and launching a capsule collection in collaboration with Senhoa, an organisation dedicated to helping Cambodian survivors of human trafficking, to raise awareness on the matter.
