His designs are Rocky’s showstoppers
Known for his young, trendy designs and cutting-edge style, Rocky S is definitely one of the big names to look out for at the Gitanjali Luxury Style Fest 09 beginning tomorrow. The Mumbai designer, whose line is the opening show on Thursday — the last day of the Style Fest, said excitedly, “It’s great to be associated with such a big brand.”
He’s presenting his spring/summer collection meant for the bold, chic woman of today who enjoys “champagne brunches and yacht parties”.
Rocky has used a lot of light pastel colours in this collection ranging from beiges to ivory and subtle pistachio, but in his signature style the mercurial designer has included black. He feels no matter the season, black is always in demand for its great versatility and will remain his personal favourite.
The fabrics chosen are cooling linens and chiffons. The designs are loose, flowy and very wearable; perfect to beat the onslaught of summer. “There are lots of tunics and chiffon dresses in this line that create a soft, feminine feel. The creations are simple with little embroidery work but lots of shine. People are definitely dressing more conservatively now and want pieces they can wear again and again. The usability of garments is an important deciding factor,” said Rocky.
He’s got no showstopper on Thursday. While Gitanjali brand ambassadors Neha Dhupia and Raima Sen will walk the ramp for him, Rocky believes the clothes are designed to stand out. “I just want people to have a good time wearing my designs,” he added.
