WLIFW: Wendell Rodricks revives the Kunbi sari

October 31, 2010

If you haven’t heard of the Kunbi sari before this, you’re not the only one. While people know the Banarasi, Paithani, Kanjeevaram and the Kasavu sari, not many are aware of Goa’s Kunbi sari. Designer Wendell Rodricks, however, is keen to bring Goa’s traditional sari into every fashionista’s wardrobe, with his Spring/ Summer 2011 collection shown at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week recently.

Wendell blended cotton and silk fabrics to create saris, tunics and tube dresses in ivory, sand washed greys and subtle greens (using organic dyes of iron ore, conjee, indigo blue, pomegranate and leaf dyes).

I think the Kunbi sari can make a simple, yet powerful style statement at work, a family gathering, or a bharatnatyam programme.

Take a look at the Kunbi sari and tell us what you think. Also note how Wendell has used the same fabric to create an ideal summer dress.
