>> A couple of days ago, Coco Rocha announced that in addition to covering red carpet for ET Canada at the Grammys Jan. 31, she will also be wearing her "very first creation" from her upcoming collection: "My team and I have been hard at work getting the dress together these last few weeks. Just this morning we had another fitting and I have to tell you, it has been so wonderful to see the picture in my head find its way into reality."
She hasn't yet revealed the name of the collection, but she did post a picture suggestive of her first design — left. And last night, she chatted with Chic Report about her designing state of mind.

We really can’t talk about the line’s name because it’s still in the final, last-minute phase with lawyers putting things together. I’m hoping that in 2010 I will have my own presentation in September. But I can tell you that I love the 1800s, costume-y, but elegant, Victorian-inspired clothes. When you wear that style out today, it’s definitely considered costume. I’m trying to take pieces and elements of that era and put it into a modern woman. I also believe 100 percent that we need affordable clothing. High fashion affordable — that is my big goal for this coming summer.
