Make your mark! Supermodel Coco Rocha, the face of Akris Fall/Winter 19 advertising campaign, shares the inspirational motto she lives by while on set in Paris. 

Discovered during an Irish dancing competition, Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha has over 15 years in the fashion industry and has made her mark not only by gracing countless catwalks and covers of magazines, but as a role model to young women all over the globe. 

As the new face of Akris Fall/Winter 19, Coco shared the motto she lives by "You must stand for something, if you don't, you'll fall for anything” on-set of the advertising campaign in Paris. These words resonate her belief of staying true to yourself and embracing your unique differences.

It’s with this positivity and her boundless energy that she teaches and mentors women through her personal modeling camp, agency and activism. Coco has used her international fame as a platform to reform the modelling industry and fight for the rights of others. This hard-working mom is the epitome of an Akris woman who has made her mark on the world and continues to be a force of nature on the runway and in real life.
