The exhibition that traces fashion’s emerging capitals will run up to November 14 and Wendell’s design will stand alongside the works of international designers and high street fashion brands. This is probably a special moment for the Goa-based designer, who once interned at the museum.
“I’m happy that India will take it’s place via Delhi and Mumbai among the world’s fashion capitals. We had a lot of hard work and fun putting together this fuschia and orange gown with floating satin orbs and circles in satin suspended from nylon wires. I’m indeed honoured and happy for both Amazon and FDCI that Indian fashion advances on a global platform,” the Goa-based Rodricks said in a statement.
