Panaji: Ace designer Rocky S brought a glamorous end to the second day of Gionee India Beach Fashion Week 2015 (GIBFW) through his bling collection.
His idea of beach wear had nothing to do with floral prints or bright colours.
Combining luxury with lavish sparkles, the designer used shimmery embroidery, tassels and bead work for the new range for women. While the fluid silhouettes looked perfect for balmy weather, the figure-hugging pants or skirts and matching tops, mostly in golden and black, were also eye catching.
“The whole collection is for you to go dress up and party. Holiday is not just about beaches..it’s also about going out in the night and enjoying the night life, playing music and feeling glamorous,” Rocky told IANS after his show at The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort Goa on Friday.
Be it skirts or pants in chiffon or georgette fabrics, pockets seemed to be essential part of the collection.
“A lot of importance is given to comfort. When you are travelling, you need to keep your phone in pockets so they are important and practical. It’s about relaxing wherever you are and not to worry about your bag, just put things in your pockets and party,” he said.
His favourite colour is black, but he has a reason for choosing golden colour for most of his pieces.
“Gold is amazing. Even if it is a simple silhouette, it looks glamorous,” he said.
Talking about being glamorous, he could not stop praising his showstopper VJ-actress Anusha Dandekar, who walked in an all-gold sequined mini dress.
“Anusha is amazing. She is full of energy, glamorous, confident and beautiful,” he said.
The three-day fashion event will wrap up on Saturday with Wendell Rodricks’ show.
