Quicktake: Rodarte

February 11, 2010 – March 14, 2010

Museum: Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: 2nd Floor

Rodarte, founded in 2005 by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, is widely acclaimed for its daring and conceptural fashion collections. This special fashion installation -- which offers a glimpse into the Mulleavys' unique process and inspiration -- reveals their complex manipulation of materials by interweaving extremely hard and delicate elements simultaneously. Recently Rodarte was awarded the 2009 Womenswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and was named a 2009 design finalist for Cooper-Hewitt's National Design Awards.

This installation is the second in a series of "Quicktake" installations aimed at showing the public new works by young designers.
