The ace designer, who's celebrity clientele includes Bollywood A-listers like Sushmita Sen, Arjun Rampal, John Abraham and Shilpa Shetty, believes that it is a challenge to design for men as they have limited choice.

"I have been doing men's wear for more than nine years now and I feel that designing for John is a bigger challenge as men have a limited choice when it comes to clothes," Rocky S said in an interview.

The designer, who believes that movies are in his blood, is excited about upcoming film 'Laamha', where he has given Bipasha a sombre look, which is a complete opposite to her glamorous image.

"The movie is very dear to me. It is for the first time that you will see Bipasha playing a Kashmiri Muslim girl. I have not created a false image. She looks very natural in the movie wearing Salwar-Kameez and kaftan in plain colours without any make-up," Rocky said.

The film, which stars Sanjay Dutt and Bipasha Basu in the lead, is directed by national-award-winning filmmaker Rahul Dholakia and deals with Kashmir issue. Bipasha plays the character of a Kashmiri girl in the movie.

The Mumbai-based designer was in the capital to launch the 'Rocky S collection' at the ongoing 'Van Heusen Mens India Week, India's first men's fashion week. The artiste feels that the modern Indian man has evolved from the past, he is fashion conscious and is not shy to reveal his feminine side anymore.

"My latest collection is for the contemporary man, the metro sexual, who is sure of himself. Today's guy wants to get his feminine side out and changes his wardrobe every season," he said.

Speaking about his latest collection, the designer said that his creations are a reflection of his own lifestyle. "My collection is all about me and reflects traits which are close to me like spirituality and travel. I use lots of cotton and linen in my creations and colours like baize and blue. My personal favourites are black and blue though I would not mind sporting red," he said.

Rocky said that given a chance to dress celebrities other than Bollywood, he would love to design for David Beckham.
