Lisa Ray to wear Wendell's gown, Satya Paul sari at her wedding
"My wedding gown is a present from one of my oldest, dearest friend (Rodricks), and is a perfect embodiment of my spirit in fabric and form. After the ceremony, I will change into a gorgeous, custom-designed Satya Paul sari. I don't want to reveal more, but I am blessed," Ray, a survivor of multiple myeloma, a rare cancer of the bone marrow, told IANS.
The wedding is on October 20 and Rodricks said that the couple is leaving from Toronto on Thursday for Napa Valley.
The designer will miss the celebration because of his work commitment, but said that the gown that he has designed epitomises dream and romance.
"I fitted her out and did the trials two months ago in my studio in our village Colvale, Goa. Lisa stayed with me for three days during which we ensured a perfect fit," Rodricks said.
"I do not want to reveal details about the dress except that it is a dreamy, romantic wedding gown that has touched a chord with Lisa. On her wedding day, we want her to be a radiant bride...This dress is very special for me as it is for a brave friend who deserves every happiness in the world," he added.
Rodricks says he regrets that he won't be there to see her.
"My big regret is that due to two fashion tours that end only on Nov 3, I cannot be at the wedding in California. But my prayers and soul will be with Lisa, who will be not just a beautiful bride but an inspirational icon that will gladden many hearts...especially Jason's," he said.
Lisa will wear a Satya Paul off-white georgette sari highlighted with beige and traditional 'gota patti' work blending with shaded sequins on the border.
The sari is teamed-up with a stylish blouse made of net, also embellished with brocade and 'gotta patti' on the back and sleeves.
Sanjay Kapoor, managing director, Genesis Colors who owns the brand Satya Paul said that Lisa is an icon of femininity, and "has risen above her difficulties with grace. It was natural for the Satya Paul brand to associate with such a strong and beautiful woman."
