When Padma Shri Wendell Rodricks undertakes a project, it is always with great passion, intense research, total dedication and discipline.
His ‘Moda Goa: History and Style’ tome took over ten years of global research before it went into print. ‘The Green Room’, Wendell’s second book traced Indian fashion through his vision and ‘Poskem’ was a fictional look at a shadowy Goan tradition. When he handed over his fashion baton for his label to Schulen Fernandes, he took 15 years to train her so that she could visualise collections in his particular genre. Wendell’s latest dream, which he hopes will turn into reality in December 2018, is the Moda Goa Museum and Research Centre, which he has wanted to establish for as long as he can remember. The museum is housed in a 450-year-old traditional Goan residence, ‘Casa Dona Maria‘, which was Wendell’s home for the past 20 years.
Wendell Rodricks reveals his thoughts on the Moda Goa Museum and Research Centre to Meher Castelino in an exclusive interview for The Luxury Chronicle.
