Indian designer Rocky Star has made quite a name for himself with both the Bollywood and Hollywood scene. Famed for his unconventional textures and chic style, both are unmissable in his AW17 collection.
A display of self-expression, the collection is titled Vida -meaning discovery of self and the beauty within. Uncovering the true nature of beauty, Star embraces literature and makes a reference to Plato’s line “beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”.
Influenced by the baroque and gothic time periods, the fading history of such heritage is bought back into the spotlight. Embodying an era of grandeur through laced texture, embroidery and decorative prints, the audience could see the heart of India within his designs.
The colour palette was kept simple, signifying the contrasting sides of the soul – the joy and fear through shades of ivory and black with a mixture of grey and beige. Fusing together comfort, elegance and statement pieces, Star took a modern take on classic charm.
The collection had a theme of romance and nostalgia running through it, with the use of lightweight fabrics, ethereal long trains, and velvet heels. Great for all body types, both common folk and celebrities alike, Rocky Star doesn’t exclude anyone from his collections.
