'Cult status, street-chic, rock vibes, quality craftsmanship'
When I was given the opportunity to go to the Rochessa launch party, I didn’t think I would be in as much awe as I was. Held at FORM (Art Gallery), the Rochessa label was loud and proud, which is totally justifiable looking at the launch party. Balloons remained in various corners with the brand label upon them, shoes from the current collection and next collection were displayed lovingly, with small booklets / leaflets accompanying the display stands. There were even rows of shoes for people to try on and purchase, which was mighty tempting. And the catering service for the event, man, don’t get me started, I could’ve stood there all night eating the delicious trays of food, and cupcakes. If you ever wanted to know how to create a successful launch party, look no further than here, because it was pretty spot on.
Created by Rachel McRae, Rochessa prides itself on providing ‘style & quality’ which I would have to say, is pretty spot on (I mean, those ‘Roll On Platforms’ are to die for). The few shoes I tried on seemed to have a sleek fit on my feet that felt rather elegant, but for a friend of mine with feet somewhat bigger than mine, couldn’t quite find her size (but perhaps that’s because of the range they had on display at the launch). Starting with the winter collection which is now available to purchase at www.rochessa.com, there is a beauty within the colour and designs of these shoes, which is something that I would definitely purchase myself. We all know that if I didn’t buy four pairs of shoes that week, I would’ve probably bought four pairs from Rochessa, though I am a self-proclaimed shoe-a-holic.
