Wendell Rodricks is a prominent fashion designer based in the western Indian region of Goa. He has been listed among one of India’s top ten designers. His art designs truly reflect the inspiration drawn from ancient India. On day 2 of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 Wendell Rodricks has presented ethereal collection. Himalayan has tied-up with world renowned designer Wendell Rodricks, who has showcased a timeless collection which was inspired by various concepts like the zero, the sari, kurta, high-waisted dhoti, and drapes of Indian garments. Wendell Rodricks has selected his favourite colours like white, black, grey, gold, skin, brown and all these colours were fused with bright shades of pink, deep orange, sun yellow and ice glacial water. Wendell Rodricks has presented 44 garments into 4 different segments.
Let’s have look on his collection:
In the first “Circles and Indian Geometry” section he has presented various wonderful attires like the black crepe silk tunic looped to create pockets, the combo of peacock satin long line tie-up choli, yellow skirt, grey kurta, multi kali waistcoat and striking Dupatta were dramatic entries.
Men’s wear was a black satin silk unisex shirt with a square cut dhoti. Detailing was discreet in its shimmer as felt, pearls and sequins embroidery blended beautifully with the fabrics.
In “Arcs and Loops” segment, he has presented white linen kurta, slim trousers and silk organza waistcoat for men including scooped one-shoulder tunic, asymmetrical top teamed with satin sharara trousers and crepe tunic with rose petal organza neckline.
For “Western Neutrals in Kurta Avatars” section, he has chosen grey colour for kurta. He has presented very imaginative combo of poncho with sari inspired hem, matched with saffron satin trousers. Men’s wear was in berry brown for crepe lungi with saffron, sunshine yellow and raani border, while the kali long waistcoat and looped shawl edged in satin silk was a dramatic vision of colour, cut and style.
“Himalayan Red Carpet” collection was awesome and full of colours. The satin pleated cape gown, backless kaftan in raani pink silk and the very sexy black Lycra choli-sari fusion vision with multi coloured Patti detailing set the pace for the finale section. The crepe silk maxi with peacock blue ribbon trails and the georgette sari-gown with twisted décolleté and sari pallav drape created dramatic magic. The square cut cowl dhoti worn with a peacock blue edged sherwani on the male model, gave a unique style statement for the masculine wardrobe.
So I just loved “Timeless” fusion of Indian fashion by Wendell Rodricks. What about you?
