Wendell Rodricks to create Lisa Ray's wedding gown

May '12
Actress Lisa Ray has officially announced to the media in Canada that her favourite Indian designer will design her wedding gown when she marries Jason Dehni in Napa Valley California on 20th October 2012. The Goan designer Wendell Rodricks dressed the star for her red carpet appearance for the film "Water" at the Toronto film festival in 2005.

It got Ray the Best Dressed Female Star at the festival, alongside Johnny Depp, voted as Best Dressed Male Star. Rodricks designed a Grecian style sari gown in his favourite colour white. Ray dazzled the media with her elegant backless stunning georgette and lycra gown, alongside the entire team of "Water", all dressed in white.

As soon as the actress confirmed her wedding, she sent a one line email to Wendell Rodricks "Will you do my dress?"

"I immediately agreed as Lisa is not just a close friend but has always been faithful to my clothes...each time recommending my name whether it was fashion shows for RADO watches or gowns for red carpet appearances and events", confirmed the designer.

Lisa Ray is very specific about what she wants and does not want. "No frills No bows... a dress I can dance in" says the Star from Toronto.

Ray and Rodricks are currently in discussions to make a dream dress that will bring out the elegance, beauty and happy emotion of the wedding. Both bride and designer do not want to reveal details of the dress until the wedding day.

Says Rodricks from his ancestral village of Colvale, "I want to dress Lisa in radiance because that's how her sparkling personality is. Top on the agenda for the dress is to ensure that it is comfortable. The rest will follow. I know Lisa's style, body and personality. We share a special friendship that goes back two decades. I am sure she will make a perfect bride on her big day".

For a change, all eyes in October will be not be on a red carpet but on a very special wedding aisle in California.
