We credit Chloë Moretz's unforgettably bright Simone Rocha number at the People's Choice Awards with putting the designer on our radar (in a big way). Now, not only is Rocha one of the newest featured designers on Net-a-Porter, but you can actually snag Chloë's neon embroidered organza dress ($1,540), too. That is, if the vibrant yellow hue and lofty price tag hit all the right notes for you and your Spring wardrobe wish list. While we're pretty sure this isn't the kind of dress that proves a universally viable shopping option, it's too cute to forgo altogether. Thus, we've gone ahead and scouted out similarly colorful embroidered dresses for your perusal. You can style your match á la Chloë — with black heels and little else — or play with the idea of "opposites attract" by offsetting the girlie sensibility with a menswear-inspired twist (read: brogues).As for the impressive lady behind the dressmaking? We're really looking forward to seeing what Rocha has in store for us come London Fashion Week. So far, the 26-year old Central Saint Martins grad has delivered three standout collections, earned an Emerging Talent nomination at the 2012 British Fashion Awards, and garnered a pretty cool A-list clientele. Please see above for further proof. While we wait on which celeb will wear the designer's creations next — and what she'll put forth for Fall '13 — shop the exact Simone Rocha neon dress here or click through our inspired-by picks below.
