Coco & the Kids

Coco Rocha talks to Linda Vojtova.

Tuesday night, Fashion Week kicked off with a bang with the Fashion’s Night Out show in its new home at Lincoln Center, but the big party was downtown in the meatpacking district, where Coco Rocha hosted a fundraiser for LakayPAM, an organization dedicated to helping the children of Haiti. Surrounded by the street art works of Mr. Brainwash, the guests included Alessandra Ambrosio, Amber Rose and a multitude of Coco’s friends who showed up in support. Alessandra purchased one of the Aurélie Bidermann bracelets as the guests danced to music by guest DJ Harley Viera-Newton. Coco, looking late-summer-perfect in a peach jumpsuit, played the perfect hostess and talked guests into placing bids in the silent auction all while interviewing her friends for the cameras. She gushed about participating in the FNO show, saying, “My favorite part was that we had a thousand+ people who didn’t usually go to shows watching us. We were like rock stars!” But at the party, the focus was on Haiti and Coco talked about how important it is to help the country rebuild. “I don’t like to be just the face,” she said. “I want to be part of the cause.” (Story and images by Jonathan Shia)
