Sisters In Style
Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the dynamic duo behind the Rodarte brand. The sisters attended the University of Berkeley in California as youths, with Kate studying English Literature and Laura studying Art. Upon graduating in 2002 the pair worked tirelessly, saving up seed money to create a capsule collection of clothing. In 2005, the collection was released and thus Rodarte was born. The collection was a hit and the pair ended up on the cover of Women’s Weekly shortly after, as well as being invited to a meeting with the formidable Anna Wintour. The pair continue to enjoy success with Rodarte clothing as well as following other pursuits; in 2015 they announced that they had written a film script entitled Woodshock, which was purchased by a production company.
Fashion Imitates Art
Rodarte began in 2005 with a 10-piece capsule collection that entranced the fashion world - even Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was impressed enough that she requested a meeting with the designers. Since its inception, the brand’s designs have been included in numerous prestigious exhibitions in museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Rodarte has also received countless accolades for its contributions to fashion, the most notable being the 2008 CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear and the 2009 CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year. Today Rodarte continues to enjoy well-deserved success, delivering unmatchable style to women across the world.
Contrasting Couture And Contemporary
Relaxed, effortless style is the heart of the Rodarte brand. The designers call upon their backgrounds in the arts when they create clothing which gives them an old-world, artistic edge over their competitors. They invoke elements of classic couture and modern femininity in their designs which creates a surprisingly wonderful paradox; the perfect and imperfect, the rigid and the relaxed, like Rodarte knitwear. Through fluid silhouettes, laid-back cuts and intricate embellishments, the Mulleavy sisters manage to pull it out of the bag every time with their indie approach to modern womenswear. Celebrity fans of the brand include Natalie Portman, Kate Bosworth and Reese Witherspoon, a small fraction of the ladies who’ve fallen in love with a Rodarte dress or two.
With inclusions in permanent exhibitions displayed in some of the world’s most famous museums. Rodarte is a brand that carries a massive amount of respect in high fashion. The Mulleavy sisters fresh, contemporary approach to clothing has ensured their clothing a lifetime of popularity. A Rodarte piece is always a welcome addition to any wardrobe.
