Wendell Rodricks places the history of Goan Costume in the spotlight for an archive that has never been researched. He traces the early settlers, the world’s first Indo-Western clothes and the final return to Indian dress after the Portuguese left Goa. Through illustrations by European travellers, a wealth of photographs by Mark Sequeira and Bharat Ramamurtham and access to the fine clothing and jewellery of Goans, Wendell Rodricks makes a debut as an author to reveal a rich tapestry of history, clothing and passionate prose taking the reader to the beauty and back waters of India’s golden state.
