Rocha appears on the cover of the November 2014 issue of Flare magazine. She talks about knowing her designers, blissful ignorance, and faking it till you make it. Rocha is also a guest editor for Flare.
A lot of designers give models a little thing here and there to thank them for their work. My first was a Louis Vuitton bag that the casting director presented to me on bended knee in this very regal way, saying, “Here, Coco, I hand you a gift.” I just blurted out, “Wow, this is my first real Louis Vuitton bag!” I thought it was a reasonable thing to say—my mom was a flight attendant, and she’d bring me imitations from Asia all the time—but now I look back and think it’s probably best not to admit to having a knock-off designer bag.
