Rocky Star Takes Over London Fashion Week with Empowering ‘Moonlight Enigma’ Collection

by Tia Janowski

Nestled within the jaw-dropping St John’s Church Hyde Park, Rocky Star unveiled their AW24 collection, ‘Moonlight Enigma’. A mesmerizing demonstration of power and allure, Rocky Stars' latest collection captivated and empowered the London Fashion Week attendees on the 19th of February. 



The show was more than just a display of the garments, it was a theatrical performance that perfectly captured a collection inspired by the bravery of the Vikings and the mystique of the Nordic region. The entire collection and runway was an ode to strength, elegance, and the grandeur of history.

 

Founded in 1995, Rocky Star is on a mission to design luxury couture for modern men and women all over the world. Driven by his love for design and a tenacious commitment to quality craftsmanship, Rocky Star showcases Indian-inspired designs to tell tales about the brand’s determination to revolutionise fashion worldwide. The brand's unique garments are crafted by passionate artisans who weave together ancient customs with modern glamour, paying particular attention to the cut, comfort, fit and finish of every item.

 

Rocky Star's newest collection, 'Moonlight Enigma', is designed for women who exude both power and sensuality, drawing inspiration from the strength and valour of the Vikings. With opulent designs adorned with sequins, metallic textures and floral prints distinctive to the Rocky Star brand, the collection explores a world where ancient customs merge with glamour. Each garment narrates a story of strength and elegance to celebrate the grandeur of the past in the present, seen through the use of shoulder pads, form-fitting tailoring and cropped jackets.

 


‘Moonlight Enigma’ tells a story through a simple colour palette of metallic hues, black and grey. This perfectly complements the traces of Baroque and Gothic styles present in the designs that bring a bold sophistication to each outfit. 


The combination of these design features, paired with the ornamental patterns, detailed needlework and stunning shapes, give the collection a luxurious yet simple aesthetic that brings the inspiration to life. 


As for the showstopper of the collection, a long coat with a green and black floral design paired with a corset and a high-neck midi dress of the same print, is a perfect example of this. Rocky Star ended the show with an outfit that managed to incorporate all the essential elements of the collection, creating a powerful and beautiful look.

 


Models glided through the ethereal mist, dramatic lighting cast its spell, and emotive orchestral music became the narrator of this collection. The music was complementary to the show, following the story of ‘Moonlight Enigma’ as the designs progressed from black to metallic to floral. The smoke and lighting effects were also executed perfectly, highlighting the metallic fabric and sequins in the right spots, showcasing the elegance of the designs.

 

St John’s Church Hyde Park, with its simple and elegant white design, became the perfect backdrop for this fashion fairy tale, wrapping the amalgamation of styles and designs in a perfectly cohesive bow. 


The only way to describe this collection is not with my own words, but of the fashion aficionado in the queue behind me, “When I first saw this collection, I genuinely shed a tear”. 


‘Moonlight Enigma’ is not just the newest collection from Rocky Star; it’s a visceral experience that transcends the boundaries of fashion and creates a portal to a world where fashion meets art. Every garment tells a story, with empowerment and confidence reigning supreme. This collection is the new manifesto of style, grace, and the unstoppable force of self-expression and its showcase at London Fashion Week left onlookers breathless.

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18
