Rocky Star SS18 – ‘Maya’
‘She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;’
This season Indian designer Rocky Star showcased a vision of self-love and confidence, and presented his fresh and powerful SS18 collection at Freemason’s Hall during London Fashion Week.
The collection was again a fantastic mix between the designer’s Indian heritage with a world of modern psychedelic wonderment full of shimmering embellishments and bling.
The collection, titled ‘Maya’, was inspired by the story of a woman who is an undeniable force of nature, unbound, fierce and free. Intoxicated by the nectar of life she is consumed by a strange high and a feeling of detachment from the real world. Like creatures that glow, she has a light of her own, to protect herself to stand strong and alone.
The essence of ‘Maya’ is deeply rooted in illusions therefore the collection was a display of mysterious prints and stunning handcrafted embroideries with beautiful feminine silhouettes in soft, flowing fabrics such as chiffon, that created a mesmerising effect, promised by the designer to transport you to a world of raw, pristine beauty. The colour palette included nude and deep forest colours giving the collection an ethereal aura and a glimpse of a poisonous escape.
