Wendell Rodricks

Wendell Rodricks has put the tiny Indian state of Goa firmly on the fashion map. Establishing his own label in 1990, he moved to his ancestral village in Goa in 1993, creating memorable collections each season, inspired by many emotions: Tibetan Monasteries, Tribal symbols of Shiva and Vishnu, the Harem at Istanbul, Tattoos of the Lambadi tribe among others. Wendell Rodricks has authored two books, Moda Goa: History and Style, on the history of Goan costume, and his memoir, The Green Room and Poskem: Goans in the Shadows.
