Senhoa gifted Coco Rocha a bracelet on a chance meeting in Paris during Coco and James’ wedding in June, 2010. Coco was deeply touched by Senhoa’s mission and stories of the survivors of human trafficking. Coco decided to wear a Senhoa bracelet on the first day of her fairytale wedding. The bracelet was the topic of conversation amongst guests at the wedding and so began the collaboration between Senhoa and Coco.
Coco Rocha for Senhoa is made up of seven unique jewelry pieces designed by Coco herself. Created using clear, black, and multi-colored Swarovski crystals, many of the pieces are shaped by a distinct chain-link arrangement of draped silver and gunmetal in various textures. Coco Rocha for Senhoa features statement pieces including earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
As a young girl growing up in Vancouver, Coco Rocha never expected to become one of modeling’s brightest stars. Her career began when she was spotted by a modeling scout at an Irish dancing competition at 14. Soon after, a meeting with world-renowned photographer Steven Meisel would lead to the cover of the March 2006 issue of Vogue Italia, which began her meteoric rise into fashion.
She quickly began appearing on the runways and campaigns for major brands like Dior, Chanel, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Anna Sui, Dolce & Gabbana, and countless others and ignited a firestorm in the fashion industry when she opened and closed the Fall 2007 Jean Paul Gaultier show by performing an Irish dance down the runway. In addition to her advertising and runway work, Coco is frequently featured in the pages and covers of top fashion magazines around the world. An avid blogger Coco has positioned herself as one of the most digitally savvy models of her generation with her highly followed blog and twitter. She frequently uses her considerable reach in social media to promote the various charitable causes she works with (www.cocorocha.com and http://oh-so-coco.tumblr.com/)
