About Coco Rocha
Coco Rocha was born in Toronto, Canada in 1988.
She has perhaps become one of the biggest and most infamous models of our generation. Rocha has walked more runways and graced more covers than nearly any other model on the planet. Her signature style and diverse talent has made her one of the top models in the world.
Coco Rocha began her professional career after signing to Supreme in 2004. She knew little about fashion at the time but quickly adapted after meeting Steven Meisel in 2006 and of course her love of fashion.
Working with the iconic photographer Steven Meisel in 2006 was her breakthrough and journey into the supermodel she has become today, her first major cover was for Vogue Italia in 2006.
One of our personal favourite photoshoots is when Chris Nicholls photographed Coco Rocha for Flare. Showcasing her edgy, empowered persona.
Her career highlights are difficult to pick as the supermodel has walked the catwalk for nearly every major fashion designer in all the major fashion cities and repeatedly been the cover model of all the top fashion magazines; including, Chanel, Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and W Magazine.
