rodarte-designer1.jpgThe sisters-Kate and Laura Mulleavy, CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalists, came from Pasadena, California, to New York in the spring of 2005 with nothing more than a few dresses and coats stuffed in their suitcase. Almost unbelievably, a week after arriving, they had shown their collection, tagged after their mother’s maiden name ‘Rodarte‘, to almost every major fashion-magazine editor and upscale retail buyer. The Mulleavys, passionate -even obsessive- about the construction of their clothes, pore over every small detail in their smart, meticulous yet romantic dresses overflowing with soft flutters of pinked chiffon and intricate hand-stitching such as bow collars, handmade flowers, and feather appliqués that brings to mind couture.
