The Guru of Indian Minimalism Wedell Rodricks showcased his latest collection The Mondrian Minimalist at the first season of Kolkata Fashion Week. India Blooms correspondent Sreya Basu gets into a tete-a-tete with the ace designer before he took to the ramps

What is The Mondrian Minimalism all about?

She is still rules the ramps, especially when it comes to ‘fashion with a difference-the natural style’. Supermodel-turned-designer Bibi Rusell gets candid with India Blooms correspondent Sreya Basu after her first ever fashion week in India.

Is it true you are participating for the first time in an Indian fashion week?

‘Bollywood is all fashion’ 27/11/2010
Neha Dhupia has style -and none can challenge it. And when she donned a Shane & Falguni Peacock black evening gown for Kolkata Fashionm Week, there was only a chorus around the ramp-‘Wow’! TWF correspondent Sreya Basu catches up with the model-turned-actor backstage after the show.

How do you feel after showstopping at the first Kolkata Fashion Week?

It’s wonderful and beyond my expectation. See, what happens at Delhi or Mumbai or other fashion weeks is that we take them for granted. Every Bollywood actor, including me , have this attitude saying, ‘If it’s not happening this year, then may be I will be able to do it next year’. But this is the first time it’s happening in Kolkata and the audience reacted so well! I hope this eagerness stays like that in future too.
