Videofashion Designers - Rodarte

Hailing from scenic California, the sisters Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, bring a West Coast sensibility—and immense, innate talent—to New York Fashion Week. After graduating from UC Berkeley with liberal arts degrees, the duo embarked on an ambitious course of independent design study; since their 2005 Fashion Week debut, they’ve impressed the fashion crowd with an other-worldly mélange of esoteric references rooted in their Pasadena home-base. Rodarte has since become known for their immaculate craftsmanship and rigorous attention to detail—a favorite of style critics and celebrities like Kirsten Dunst, Natalie Portman, and Reese Witherspoon. The Mulleavy sisters are likewise regulars at the awards podium, having received back-to-back CFDA Awards and a Night of Stars honor from Fashion Group International.
