Indian opener Virender Sehwag walked the ramp at the Kolkata Fashion Week (KFW)-II here, sending the audience into raptures.

Wearing a hand-woven sherwani suit, Sehwag exuded oodles of confidence as he walked the ramp for designer Rocky S.

“Sehwag was perfectly chilled out in the attire. He was happy about what he was wearing,” Rocky S. told reporters.

“When a person is confident about what he is wearing, it’s half the battle won,” he said.

Talking about his new collection, Rocky S. said, “This time I focused on colour and textile-based comfort oriented fashion wear. I tried to keep my collection very light so that it becomes more wearable.

“I used silk, hand-woven fabric mainly adopted from Benaras, and linen in my collection. I made this collection, especially keeping in mind the culture of Kolkata where hand-woven and colourful textiles are popular among people.”

Asked why he had chosen a sportsman like Sehwag as a showstopper, Rocky S. said: “Sports is very important in India. So I’ve chosen a cricketer for the role.”
