EXCELLENCE WITH A TWIST: KATE AND LAURA MULLEAVY for RODARTE

Exhibiting Rodarte, designed by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, honored as the 2009 Womenswear Designers of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the subjects of the recent Twisted Sisters profile in The New Yorker, as well as of Quicktake: Rodarte, an installation (opening February 11, 2010) presented by the Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Museum. Says the museum: “Rodarte’s creations feature complex manipulation of materials and other meticulous techniques evocative of haute couture through an American lens. The Mulleavys deliver emotionally powerful, dynamic collections that interweave extremely hard and delicate elements simultaneously. Recent runway collections have referenced disparate themes, such as the building and taking apart of homes, California Condors, Boris Karloff as Frankenstein, land art and Japanese horror films.” Recent collaborations: A 55-piece line discount retailer Target.
