Known for its eclecticism, Rodarte combines a high-fashion couture entity into a modernized sense of femininity. The brand was founded by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy in 2005. Since its inception, Rodarte has rapidly grown into a well-respected American brand, winning them several awards, one being the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2009.
Their laundry-list of achievements and success began when the self-taught designers traveled to New York from California with their handmade designs. After cold-calling fashion editors, they hit a struck of luck and landed an interview at Women’s Wear Daily.
The rest is history. From clothing to accessories, the brand finds a way to incorporate old and new in a brilliant and unique way. The duo take inspiration from different aspects of their lives to create each collection - it is evident what the themes are but the pieces are truly what you make of it when you wear them.
