Wendell Rodricks is a pioneer fashion designer who specialised in resort wear, minimalism and eco-friendly fashion before the words were coined. He is a frequent participant in some of the world’s biggest fashion fairs, including IGEDO, the Salon Pret-a-Porter Paris and BIOFACH Nuremburg. The Wendell Rodricks style is recognised for its unique fluid emotion and lack of embroidery. Wendell has done three grand finales for Lakme Fashion Week and his work has earned respect in the corporate world as well. He has written two books - Moda Goa : History and Style (Collins) chronicles the evolution of Goan costumes, and The Green Room (Rain Tree) is an autobiographical account of his rise in the fashion industry. Apart from writing, he has done various design projects ranging from designing for the Goa Police to designing the packaging for the Blenders Pride carton for the festive season in 2012.

Wendell Rodricks will speak about The Green Room in Chennai on February 17, 2013 at the Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall in Lady Andal School.
