Mumbai-based designer Rocky S believes that fashion isn’t just about clothes, it’s a way of life. He blends his taste in Westernwear with an Indian aesthetic, and has done the clothes for plenty of Bollywood stars, from Katrina Kaif (Singh is Kinng and Yuvraj) and Kangna Ranaut (Raaz 2) to John Abraham (New York) and Bipasha Basu (the forthcoming Pankh). Rocky is now expanding into home furnishings, plus he’s creating exclusive collections of sunglasses, jewellery, shoes, and his own designer jeans label.
