Rooney was in to showcase his work at the Vaunt International Fashioner Week which was held in earlier this month.

A fan of ace Indian Manish Arora, Rooney told IANS in an email interaction: "I would love to collaborate with an Indian designer.

Rooney says the vibrant colour palatte that Indians use inspires him and his work a lot.

"The colours of India, I feel, are exactly what encompasses my design," said Rooney, who had been invited to the extravaganza by School of Trends.

Rooney, who hails from Birmingham, said: "My hometown is In Birmingham, I always felt I was a bit of an outsider. In Birmingham, we have areas where Indian communities live and the shops are full of beautiful, bejewelled and bright Indian clothes".

"There is a lack of funding for people who need it. You just have to really push yourself through that," he said.
