A homage to Wendell Rodricks

This show will be paying a tribute to late fashion designer Wendell Rodricks, who passed away this year in February, due to prolonged health issues. A few of Wendell's last pieces and his resort collection will be displayed as a part of this digital event. The IBFW-Resort Edition 2020 will also showcase new collections of designers Ken Ferns and Nidhi Munim.

Ferns' is scheduled to bring out his collection 'The Fernweh Extension' which has drawn inspirations from various tribes around the world while designer Nidhi Munim's collection will speak of comfort clothing layered with sustainability.

IBFW's founder was quoted saying, "It is a huge challenge to move from such a grand and successful on-ground format to a virtual one as the content needs to be super engaging and exciting for the audience. But this will only help raise the bar. We're excited to have many new audiences in this interesting format!"

A message to all our readers

This pandemic has struck the fashion industry too and many prominent brands are on the verge of bankruptcy. So if brands worth multi-million rupees are suffering this way, imagine the impact of this virus on the local sellers and artists. If at all you're willing to spend some money on a new wardrobe, do try to support the local small-scale businesses around because they need your help to thrive at the moment. Use your purchasing power mindfully because even a single item, can make a big difference in someone's livelihood.
