Coco Rocha and I at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

It was the second day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and I was running to catch the GreenShows Presentation. As I was walking into the tents I noticed one of my favorite supermodels Coco Rocha about to walk in as well. I've always been a huge fan of her work and I really wanted to meet her but we were both busy running to our respective fashion week destinations.   

I then made my way into the tents and got on line for the GreenShows presentation. As I was waiting I decided to turn around and meet the people behind me. It's always great to network with fellow fashion week goers. 

As luck would have it the person behind me was Coco Rocha! Talk about fashion fate?? She was also attending the GreenShows Presentation and just happened to get on line right behind me! 

It was such a pleasure to finally meet Coco and she was just as gorgeous and sweet as you hear she is in person. I noticed that she and her team were wearing these stunning crystal necklaces. Coco mentioned that they were part of her exclusive collection for Senhoa jewelry and that some of the pieces were being shown at the GreenShows presentation we were about to see. 

Coca Rocha for Senhoa is made up of unique jewelry pieces designed by Coco herself. Created using clear, black, and multi-colored Swarovsky crystals, many of the pieces are shaped by a distinct chain-link arrangement of draped silver and gunmetal in various textures.

The jewelry is hand made by survivors of exploitation in Cambodia to earn money for themselves and their families. Proceeds from the sale of each piece go directly to fund Senhoa’s community development projects, which provide income-generating opportunities, and aid in the rescue, rehabilitation, and education of young women in South East Asia.

“Accessorizing can do more than just compliment a woman’s wardrobe and beauty—it can make a statement about what she believes,” says Rocha on the Senhoa website.
