End of Fall 2010 Fashion Shows: Closing of Rodarte at Cooper-Hewitt Museum
Things happen faster in teams. With most artists waiting at least a decade for a retrospective of iconic works, Laura and Kate Mulleavy waiting half that time. Founded in 2005, their innovative fashion designs have soared to immeasurable success. Zero formal training arguable makes them the most successful young designers of the contemporary market. Both attended Berkley, Laura focused on literature and Kate art history. An evolutionary process ensued. Storytelling bridged with artistic knowledge created Rodarte, labeled after their mother's maiden name. Their first meeting in New York was with Women's Wear Daily, three days later they were on the journal's cover accompanied by a phone call from Anna Wintour.
