That’s only if you’re flaunting a dress designed by Houston native Rocky Boston that is.
Rocky Boston debuted her Pre-Fall 2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 9th, 2018 at the Stewart Hotel New York where she showcased designs from her Moi Intérieur “Inner Me” collection which you’ll see non-traditional wedding gowns, edgy evening gowns, and floral embroidered sheer gowns.
“Moi Intérieur was created based on “inner me” whatever I felt that day I just let my “inner me” come out and I created,” say’s Boston.
Boston brought her talents back to the streets of H-Town where she hosted the “Rocky In The City Fashion Show” in East Downtown at Sharespace to display her ensemble for buyer that weren’t able to attend NYFW.
Where did your inspiration come from for your debut in NYFW?
I decided to let myself be my inspiration. I created based on feeling at that very moment for each garment.
How long did it take for you to prepare for NYFW?
Honestly I had zero money, so I could only attempt to mentally prepare and I started my collection Jan 8, 2018 lol.
What was the experience like in NYFW?
What was your biggest fear when going out and starting your own line?
My biggest fear…the first time I did it my motive was wrong. I was doing it for the money…FAIL! I went and got a job, and then I felt GOD shoving me out the door. Second time around my biggest fear was not trying again!
What roles do you think social media plays in fashion today?
Major roles! Before you had to buy a magazine or hope to see a celebrity on TV set a trend, now as individuals we all have the ability to inspire and be inspired by the click of a button.
What’s your favorite part about being a designer?
The ability to follow ZERO rules and freely create wearable art for others.
Fashion is…WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO BE! Fashion is in the eye of the beholder!
Where did “She Only Wear Designer” come from?
One day I was being super bourgeois by myself and posting pictures from a show I had just done and as I was hash tagging I started thinking in third person and on the picture I typed #SheOnlyWearsDesigner and the aaaaand the rest is history lol.
Whose your favorite designer?
Strangely I’ve never had one…me!
Coffee or Tea?
Tea…green tea or probiotic tea

Weirdest thing you seen someone do in your gowns?
Lol the weirdest thing…hold in their booty cheeks and squeeze or suck in every part of them to fit it because they just HAAAD to wear it and arm twerk with their shoulders because they couldn’t dance.
What would you tell the younger Rocky?
Younger self… I’d say…“keep going girl, your only going to get better, no need to look around your different for a reason.“ If I hadn’t stayed true to me and if my mom hadn’t allowed me to completely be me, I’d never be where I am today.
