RIPPLE COLLECTION
Seagrams Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2005, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Delhi & Hyderabad.
In the world mourning the Tsunami, the colour code was earth mixed with hints of sky, sea and blood red. The clothes in crinkled fabrics treated to soft wave lines and teamed with luscious gleaming satins or sheer organzas. Not single sequin or bead, the collection is of colour, cut and style in the purest minimalist form.

OCEANIA COLLECTION
LIFW 2005, The Grand, Delhi.
Wendell Rodricks OCEANIA collection arrives from the islands in the Indian and Pacific Ocean. Documenting the tribal sea art of the islanders, the collection is a new statement from India’s Guru of Minimalism. Indian tribes who traveled the ancient sea routes, settle on islands as far flung as Easter Island and Papua New Guinea, return to India on the LIFW 2005 ramp in a silhouette that is a blend of structure, sculpture and sensuous fluidity. Sportswear staples blend with sublime silks. Edgy denimwear meet couture cuts. Layers play a strong part in mixing an Indian tunic with a Western jacket over an island sarong and jersey trousers. The garments are blended by the minds of the islanders. Ancient with modern. Indian with International.
