Late designer Wendell Rodricks had handpicked Schulen Fernandes as the successor of his fashion label before he passed away in 2020. Schulen Fernandes was appointed as the creative director for the resort wear label of the legendary fashion designer.

But she clearly stated that she is not taking over his brand as creative head nor is she collaborating with his brand. As she continues to focus on her designer label and will be working on the growth of her fashion label. Also on the end note, she wished Wendell Rodricks’ team luck for their further endeavours.

However, I am just a fan like everyone else and am not taking over his label as Creative Director, or doing a collaboration with the brand, as reports suggest. I am 100% committed to the House of Masaba & all my energies are focused on the growth of my label. I wish WR's team all the best.” Here is her INSTA Stories-
