Wendell Rodrick’s Indigofera is deeply influenced by the indigo plantation

Padma Shri award-winning designer, Wendell Rodricks’ collection Indigofera has been inspired from the Indigo plant in various interpretations. From it’s beautiful blue colour to its leaf shaped silhouettes. From leaf stalk inspired pleating detail to the use of denim, Indigofera is the most modern visual of the fabled Indian indigo dye from antiquity in a paradigm shift for 2018 international fashion.

Complimenting colours along with Indigo form a summer palette. Indigo was offset with hues of ivory, pale arctic blue, leaf green, orchid pink, marmalade orange, coral red, egg yolk yellow and rose quartz. This beautiful palette embraced a variety of fabrics — denim, Oxford denim, Malkhanon-bailed cotton with a ‘spring’ in the weave, Gauze linen cotton and pure linen.

 Using a vertical, long line silhouette, design innovations such as hand sewed pleats, 3D pleated collars and stoles, layered sleeves, cutaway blousons, wrap belt ties, leaf shaped pattern pieces and layered skirt-pants.

 Keeping with the Wendell Rodricks DNA, Schulen Fernandes retains the designer label affinity for minimalism, Goan ethos, sharp colour contrasts, structure and Indian geometric lines.
