Runway Report

'Schulen Fernandes for Wendell Rodricks' presented 'The Wow Factor Collection' at Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week — and literally wowed all of us with the resort and swim wear that's steering the fashion house in a new direction.


From the first look — Kyara Coelho in a purple hooded jacket with pink and blue accents and a multi-coloured skirt —the collection had a relaxed millennial vibe, visible in the lightweight dresses, capes, sarong saris, tops and skirts crafted with silk, satin, crepe, georgette and lycra in colour-blocked bright colours. The swimwear, created with silk and four-way knits, would make a stunning statement at the beach, the pool or aboard a star-truffled yatch.


What made this collection compelling was the liberating creative silhouettes and pop colours! Although each look was attractive and retail-friendly, there were some real beauties like a strapless colour blocked [in stripes!] cut to the thigh — accessorised with a crochet neckpiece and retro sunglasses. A blue cutout swimsuit worn with a crochet cover-up. But best of all was a kicky little blue cover-up, over a bikini, teamed with ruched pants because it spoke to the overriding message about youthful elegance. My favourite look? The off-the-shoulder long orange and red striped blouse with tie-up ruched sleeves worn over a purple mini skirt! A little tug on the tie-up detailing and the blouse could be worn as a short dress! It was, indeed, the wow factor.
